Discover your options

This step involves researching your options for implementation. There are three basic routes to OHSAS 18001 certification for your business:

  • Do it alone – This is the most difficult and time-consuming way, because it involves creating every document from scratch and figuring out all the steps on your own. Many companies try it this way, but very few are actually successful at implementation. In many cases, after months (or years) have passed, companies discover that a lot of time and money have been wasted with no real results.
  • Pay a consultant – Sure, a consultant will hold your hand throughout the entire process, but they’ll also send you a big bill afterward. Still, if this is the route you want to take, make sure you use our OHSAS 18001 consultant checklist to evaluate the consultant you choose (expertise can vary widely among consultants).
  • Do it yourself with support – this is how we do things at 18001Academy. We provide all the documentation templates, expert guidance, and professional support you need to earn OHSAS 18001 certification without hiring a consultant.
