What is an OHSAS 18001 audit checklist?


An OHSAS or ISO 18001 checklist is a tool used by safety officers to confirm whether a company's existing management system for occupational health and safety (SGU) complies with the OHSAS 18001 standard. It is used to assess the readiness of the company for SCC certification by third parties.


Note: The ISO 45001 replaces OHSAS 18001, but the old standard will remain in force until March 2021.

Key areas of an OHSAS 18001 audit checklist


Derived from the requirements of the occupational health and safety management system, which is based on the OHSAS 18001:2007 standard, a checklist is used to confirm the following points:


1. Planning of occupational safety and health protection


An OHSAS 18001 checklist confirms that a company has carried out a hazard identification and risk assessment. This can be used to determine safety controls to be carried out in the workplace. It should also confirm that the scope of the occupational health and safety management system is well defined and complies with the ISO 18001 standard.


2. Implementation of occupational safety and health protection


The OHSAS 18001 audit checklist is intended to confirm that company managers feel responsible for the implementation of health and safety. In addition, it is intended to prove that the company uses monitoring instruments such as internal audits to check and document the effectiveness of safety and health protection measures.


3. Continuous improvement in occupational safety


The OHSAS 18001 checklist is intended to confirm that management has reviewed the results of the internal audits in order to identify potential for improvement as part of the continuous optimization of occupational safety.



Technology to strengthen the OHSAS 18001 standard


Lumiform's mobile app allows you to easily perform any kind of quality and safety inspection via tablet or smartphone - online or offline. With the desktop software you can create ISO 18001 checklists and later evaluate the collected data. This significantly reduces the risk of quality losses, industrial accidents, documentation errors and damage to your reputation.


A company must prove that the implemented occupational safety measures are actually effective. Maintaining an effective and documented occupational health and safety management system, which is also based on the OHSAS 18001 standard, is a challenge that can be mastered by switching from paper to digital.


Lumiform makes it easier for you to comply with the ever-increasing legal requirements for process documentation by using the mobile app to document via smartphone or tablet and to be guided by the system through all documentation processes. A clean, transparent documentation helps to avoid high fines. The easiest way to do this is with a digital solution like Lumiform. With the digital solution you can do the following:


  • The flexible form construction kit helps you convert any paper list into a digital 18001 checklist within minutes.
