Health and safety management systems

Design, implementation and audit of health and safety management systems

EEF can provide a comprehensive service to support you with all your health and safety management system needs, including identification of requirements, design, and implementation and auditing. We can provide ongoing support to maintain and update your systems, ensuring they remain compliant at all times. Out services guide you through each stage of your management system, whether it’s developing an existing system or one or implementing a new one. We are experienced with both certified, for example BSOHSAS18001, or a non-certified system. As a member of the BSI committee representing the UK throughout the development of ISO 45001 we have unique insight into the standard and how, how to achieve certification and how to derive the greatest business value from your system.

ISO 45001 transition and preparation for certification

Our team of Safety and Health consultants can help you achieve or transition to ISO 45001. Our support is designed to maximise the business value that achieving certification to ISO 45001 can deliver. Find out more.


Auditing health and safety management systems

We're able to audit your management system against a specified model such as BS OHSAS 18001, ISO 45001 or HSG65. We’ll provide you with a report covering compliance items, areas exceeding expectation and those where there is an opportunity to achieve better value from the process.
