Occupational health and safety management systems provide a framework for managing an organization’s occupational health and safety responsibilities, which enable organizations to:
- Improve health and safety performance
- Reduce or prevent injuries, illnesses and fatalities
Scope of accreditation
The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) accredits certification bodies that assess and certify occupational health and safety management systems to the OHSAS 18001 Health and Safety Standard.
Benefits of SCC accreditation
SCC accreditation demonstrates an organization’s competence to manage and perform activities defined by its specific program scope of accreditation. Through SCC accreditation, certification bodies are able to obtain independent, third-party, credible test results for themselves and for their customers.
SCC accreditation helps certification bodies deliver services with confidence and attract new customers. As a signatory member to several international mutual recognition and multilateral agreements, SCC’s Accreditation Program is internationally recognized.
SCC’s Criteria and Procedures section highlights each international standard and Canadian procedural document whose requirements must be met for a particular accreditation program.
