The Occupational, Health and Safety Standard gives requirements for control and management of risks related to health and safety issues at work place. The standard does not state specific performance criteria, nor does it give detailed specifications for the design of a management system. The general focus of OH&S includes:

• Establishing a management system to eliminate or minimize risk to employees and other interested parties who may be exposed to OH&S risks associated with its activities.

• Establish, implement and maintain OH&S policy and demonstrate compliance

• Implement, maintain and continually improve an OH&S management system

The OH &S standard seeks to identify and management occupational health and safety relating to activities/operations in organizations but not the products and services of the organization.
