Really,i m seeing your articles very interesting as i did follow the 12 steps that one need for the OHSAS 18001 ;In the roles,responsibilities&authorities,how do you do ? YOU need to assign the roles to people whom to participate to the implementing of the policy ?And give them responsibilities to do means there job description and authority must be the management to also have a duty to do ?accepting the resolutions ?
Best regards

Answer:

OHSAS 18001 requires organization to assign roles and responsibilities for:
a) Ensuring that the OH&S management system is established, implemented and maintained in accordance with this OHSAS Standard;
b) Ensuring that reports on the performance of the OH&S management system are presented to top management for review and used as a basis for improvement of the OH&S management system.

Basically you need to assign responsibility to someone (or a group of people) in your organization for compliance with the standard and reporting on the performance of your Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OH&SMS). This person is management representative and should be part of the top management. He or she should coordinate internal audits and other activities regarding the OH&SMS and report to the top management.
