The Abu Dhabi Occupational Safety and Health Centre, OSHAD, has accomplished a new achievement, after a series of achievements in recent years, by obtaining an international accreditation from an Australian organisation, Exemplar Global, one the largest international companies in the field of continuing professional development for individuals seeking professional recognition to improve their international careers.
The Australian organisation accredited OSHAD with an alternative standard of the international occupational safety and health management system, known as, “OHSAS18001”, as part of the requirements to register or renew the registration of OSHAD’s auditors, according to the requirements of the international system.
This system was previously adopted by the International Register of Certificated Auditors, IRCA, one of the largest international organisations in the field of accrediting auditors.
Dr. Jaber Eidha Al Jaberi, Director-General of OSHAD, stated that the centre is the competent authority that manages the system of Abu Dhabi, which aims to provide safe and healthy working conditions for all employees in th emirates, as well as reduce occupational injuries. Therefore, the centre is keen to register the system among the alternative standards of recognised international organisations, he added.
