Oscar, tell us about the 18001Academy?
Hi folks. Easy question, that one. The 18001Academy is a brand-new site that was created to help organizations (like yours!) implement OHSAS 18001 more efficiently. Our method is called “do-it-yourself with support,” meaning you do the implementation yourself, but with lots of help, tools, education and other resources to make it fast and easy.
So what do you do at the 18001Academy?
Being wise and courteous by nature (I’m an owl, after all), I’m here to help you prepare for your implementation and make things easier. You aren’t an expert – that’s why you’re here. So, I take you by the hand and guide you through the whole thing. We’ll start with deciding if OHSAS 18001 is right for your company, and end up with an effective implementation. I’m like a real, live consultant, only I don’t cost you a dime. And I’m nicer.
You sound like you don’t like consultants. Why not?
Oh, no, I don’t mean that consultants aren’t nice. I’m sure they’re good people, as people go. I just mean that hiring an outside consultant is rather old-fashioned (and costly!) for most small and medium business that want to implement OHSAS 18001.
At the 18001Academy, we have a broad consultancy right online, along with lots of other resources. This combination means you don’t need an expensive consultant – the idea is becoming obsolete. As the world – and technology – changes, new ideas and new approaches are always coming along and making everyone’s job easier. One example is the 18001Academy.
Our unique method of “do-it-yourself with support” enables your organization to quickly and easily implement OHSAS 18001. All you need is the internet and a hot cup of coffee (or tea, or a nice muffin…)
Wait, if it’s just a website, what do I do if I’m stuck?
Now you’re thinking like an owl! Don’t worry – the toolkits and other resources at the 18001Academy are easy to understand, so you probably won’t get stuck very much.
Still, we all get stuck from time to time! For that reason, we have lots of ways to get you back on track:
- We offer a FREE online consultation with one of the experts on our team. They’ll know the answers to all of your questions.
- Get around-the-clock help on the Virtual Consultant pages (that’s me!), for resources and tools to help.
- Find real-world tips and practical advice on our blog (updated regularly by OHSAS 18001 experts).
- Or, join our Expert Advice Community, to talk one-on-one with our resident experts, and other folks just like you, about anything you need help with. We guarantee one of our experts (maybe two or three!) will respond to your post in 24 hours or less. And guess what – it’s FREE!
Thanks so much, Oscar! Those were great tips!
Oh, I’m always happy to help! You can find me any time; just stop by my nest any time you need help from a wise old friend.
