ABSTRACT:
Nowadays scientists believe that saving the people’s lives in the working environment is a major that the Bhopal disaster in India indicates the importance of this fact. As a result, the efforts have been concentrated on generating the standards to avoid such accidents and cover the safety and occupational health of the employees. This paper is aimed to review and try to implement the requirements of the clause 4.3.1 of OHSAS 18001:2007 in an Indian University. This article is sorted into a descriptive and cross-sectional field research that has been done practically. Sampling population in this survey are students, University of Petroleum and Energy studies. The purpose of OHSAS 18001 is to help organizations to manage and control their occupational health and safety risks and to improve their occupational health and safety performance. They can achieve this purpose by developing an occupational health and safety management system (OHSMS) that complies with the standard. These elements include responsibilities, authorities, relationships, functions, activities, processes, practices, procedures, and resources. These elements are used to establish OH and S policies, plans, programs, and objectives.
