2. How do I need to use local legislation? or will 18001 cover all ground?
3. What do I need to consider with KPI values?

Answer:

1. Usual time-frame for implementation of OHSAS 18001 is three to six months, but it depends o the size of the company, number of locations and the method you choose for the implementation. If you decide to do it completely by yourself, using only resources inside the company, it will take you from six months to a year. If you hire a consultant it will take from one moth to three moths and this is the fastest way. The third option is to use some online tools like ours (OHSAS 18001 Documentation Toolkit https://advisera.com/18001academy/ohsas-18001-documentation-toolkit/) and in this case you will do it by yourself with our online support and it takes up to three months.

2. OHSAS 18001 does not prevent organizations from applying legislation, on the contrary it provides a framework for identification of applicable requirements and co mpliance assessment. It relies on application of the legislation but it cannot replace them.

3. A key performance indicator (KPI) is a measurement of a certain type of activity that a company or organization partakes in. Basically, you need to determine some values that relate to occupational health and safety, define aimed values and monitor and measure those values over the year.
