OHSAS 18001 2007 Gap Analysis Tool

The following material will introduce our Plain English Gap Analysis Tool.
However, it will not present the complete product. Instead, it will show you
how our Gap Analysis Tool is organized and how it is used. In addition,
we will show you an example of our approach. Once you've examined
our approach, we hope you'll consider purchasing our complete
OHSAS 18001 2007 OH&S Gap Analysis Tool (Title 66).

Our gap analysis tool will allow you to compare your current OH&S
practices with the OHSAS 18001 2007 occupational health and
safety
management standard. This comparison will pinpoint the
areas that fall short of the new standard (the gaps). Once you know
where to focus your attention, you can begin to make the changes
that are needed to comply with the standard.

Our gap analysis process consists of six questionnaires, one
for each of the six Parts (4.1 to 4.6) that make up the core of the
OHSAS 18001 standard. In total, there are 561 questions, one for
each of the requirements that make up the standard.

Part 4.1 starts with some very general questions. The rest of the Gap
Analysis (Parts 4.2 to 4.6) discusses these general questions in greater
detail. Because of this we suggest that you use the general questions
in Part 4.1 to give you an overview of what the rest of the OHSAS 18001
standard expects you to do. Your detailed Gap Analysis will be carried
out as you answer the specific questions in Parts 4.2 to 4.6.

For each question, two answers are possible: YES or NO. Answer
each question by selecting one of these two answers. A YES answer
means youíre in compliance with the standard while a NO answer means
youíre not in compliance. NO answers reveal gaps that exist between the
OHSAS 18001 2007 standard and your organizationís OH&S practices.
To the right of your answers, you will find a space that you can use to
record any comments or observations you might have.

Once youíve completed all six questionnaires, study your NO
answers and your comments and use them to develop your own
unique OHSAS 18001 Compliance Plan. Use the associated questions
to formulate actions or steps that need to be taken in order to bring
your OH&S practices into compliance.
 

Our Plain English Gap Analysis Tool is easy to understand and
ready to use. It is focused, detailed, and complete. We
guarantee it!
