What are the differences between OHSAS and SCC?


The differences are that OHSAS ISO 14001 requires the environment.
SCC, the environmental component in the certification.
OHSAS is more a way as ISO is done in a more comprehensive way.
When you want OHSAS or SCC you need to choose what is requested by the client and what the background of your choice is.
You want a certification because the client is mandatory to perform work or want a certification because you will find that your company according to a particular method should be done by your staff.
If you choose the latter then your thought appropriate.
In this way, you ensure that every method in your company will be implemented to ensure that safe but according to a pre-chosen way worked.
In this way, you have a good control over all processes within your company.
It is also clear to everyone according to which method is used, you can throughout the process at all times steer the process, whatever the results only benefit.
In this way, you have direct control over not only the safety but also the results.

The idea that there are at most companies there is that safety costs money.
When SCC is also common as there by the companies for SCC is chosen because the client so requires, and there is little attention is paid.
If an idea is developed to operate safely and to make more profit than OHSAS is a better choice.
Only if from the board in this way is thought OHSAS is an ideal way to all processes within a company where to send it through the efforts of all employees, from high to low, at one and the same will be done.


This provides better control and management throughout the company because more is expected of the employees themselves and not just the security manager.
By tracking processes by all employees enjoy a self-directed approach to all departments and allow early looks at results.


If you take the above as a guide you can make a choice that best fits your business get out.

In the Netherlands, most companies opt for SCC as prompted arid the client.
There are three classes.
SCC **
SCC petrochemicals

Here it depends on what the client is and what the company is performing.
Is it a company that only through an intermediary or company performs a work then SCC sufficient unless the work is to be performed at a petrochemical company that SCC ** as minimum sets.
Is a company which mainly performs work as main contractor is SCC ** minimum.
Is a company mainly for the petrochemical industry than is SCC Petrochemistry the certificate that must be achieved to meet all requirements.
