We are looking at putting together a legal register of legislation for the BS OHSAS 18001 accreditation and would like to know if anyone could point us in the right direction as to what information would be required on such a register.

If anyone could provide an example or outline the requirements for such a register it would be greatly appreciated and I am sure it would help many others looking to go down the occupational health and safety 18001 route.

Any further advice on implementing 18001 and the key steps to take would also be very useful.

Some helpful information passed on by Mick Blunt, as follows:

BS OHSAS 18001:2007 has been designed to work alongside the ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 14001 (Environmental) and will help ensure your organisation meets its health and safety obligations in a competent and structured manner and is the internationally recognized assessment specification for occupational health and safety management systems.

Implementing an Occupational Health and Safety Assurance System (OHSAS) as part of your company's management strategy will enable you to directly address changing legislation and protect your employees and customers.

BS OHSAS 18001:2007 will provide you with a flexible framework that will allow your business to constantly identify and manage its health & safety risks, reducing the potential for accidents and aid compliance to legislation, thus improving overall performance and promoting a safe and healthy working environment

Register of Legislation:
Identify and list all parts (full or part of) the regulations (plus any amendments) that affect the tasks you perform. Start at the top of the tree and work down i.e HSAW 1974 –PPE 1992. Then think about the impact (impact assessment) these have on your working activities. Explain what impact they have. From there each area will lead to the next, your ISO assessor should help point you in to the right areas to be covered. As you work through remember what may have dual impact H&S – Environment
