There has been a considerable increase in the number of enquiries that I have received for BS OHSAS 18001 certification. It seems that businesses are increasingly aware of the need not only to meet current legislation but to keep employees safe and morale high by demonstrating the 'OH' part (Occupational Health) as well as the safety element.

I have been offering Quality, Environmental and information security consultancy for many years but it became clear that I would need to include Health & Safety Management Consultancy as part of the service offered to Clients.

I enrolled in the BSI Certificate on Occupational Health & Safety Course, which is a distance learning system. There are eight modules provided on 3 CDs. Each module is concluded by an assignment. The assignments are marked by A BSI Tutor and the next module is commenced. The course material, both on the CD and in paper format was very good and gave me all the information I needed to pass the assignments. My Tutor was very complimentary about my assignments and there was only one instance where I needed to resubmit information.

Last Friday I received my Certificate and I am delighted that my knowledge has been greatly improved. I can see that the Standard 18001 is not just about Safety but also encompasses Health and wellbeing.

All in all I am very pleased with the result.
