OHSMS Principles

Standards are based on principles. 

ISO 9001 is based on quality principles. ISO 19011 is based on auditing principles.  Last week, I participated in a conference call for ISO 14046 in which we discussed what principles are important to the development of a water footprint.  For this discussion we started with the sustainability principles set out in a publication entitled, Guide to Corporate Ecosystem Valuation, which was recently developed by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development.

Just as principles are important for many of the ISO standards, OHSAS 18001 is also based on several principles.
