Answer:

OHSAS 18001 requires that the whole OH&SMS (Occupational Health and Safety System) is audited within planned arrangements to ensure its compliance with the OHSAS 18001. Some areas or parts of the system can be audited more frequently if they have more risks and if they had more nonconformities during previous audits or operation. For more information, see:

Implementation of the OHSAS 18001 should be perceived as a project, meaning that you need to determine what needs to be done, who will do it, what are the deadlines and what resources are needed. In this way you will avoid missing anything out and you w ill be able to distribute the responsibilities for the implementation across the organization. For more information, see:
