Answer:
It is hard to give an example because the scope statement is very specific to the organization it is written for. It is important to remember that the purpose of the scope for the OHSMS is to identify where your OH&S rules, policies and procedures need to be applied within your organization. So, it needs to include the information of activities, products & services, locations, etc. which can affect your OH&S performance, and therefore will indicate exactly what your OH&S rules apply to. For instance, if you have a main plant with many satellite locations (such as a contractor firm) all of this should be included in your scope since the PH&S rules and processes will apply in all locations.
