OHSAS 18001:1999 Health and Safety Management System

Horsebridge continually strive toward the elimination of personal injuries, occupational illnesses and damage to equipment and property in all of its operations; the protection of the general public whenever it comes in contact with Horsebridge’s work; and the prevention of pollution and environmental degradation.

The ultimate success of the Horsebridge’s occupational health and safety depends upon the full cooperation of each individual employee. To that end, our management team is responsible for ensuring that applicable rules and procedures are established and enforced, and that effective educational programs are employed to the best advantage. In recognition of this Horsebridge hold certification to OHSAS 18001:1999.

OHSAS 18001 was first introduced in 1999 and requires organisations to assess their risk and implement an effective occupational health and safety management system to promote a safe and healthy working environment. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.

The OHSAS specification recognises that the organisation has an established occupational health and safety management system and is able to demonstrate that risk is eliminated or minimised to employees and any other interested parties who may be exposed to occupational health and safety risks associated with its activities.

Whilst successfully continuing to maintain and improve the safety management system, Horsebridge is also able to assure compliance with its Safety Policy Statement and actively demonstrate such conformance to others.
