WHAT IS ISO 45001?
Regardless of your industry sector, accidents that lead to injury or health related issues will always occur. Therefore, whether you are an employee, manager or business owner, you will always share the same goal - minimize the number of casualties at work. This new ISO standard provides you with a framework to identify, control and prevent workplace safety.
ISO 45001:2018 is the replacement for OHSAS 18001, and is the new international ISO standard for defining the minimum requirements for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OHSMS). Applicable to organizations of all sizes, the standard provides a framework for establishing a safe working environment and preventing workplace injuries, ill-health, and deaths. It is dedicated to continual improvement of occupational health and safety performance via a well-planned, executed, and monitored OHS management system. The new OHSMS standard easily integrates with other recent ISO management systems standards since it shares the new common structure defined by Annex SL in the 2015 versions of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
If your organization has already certified to OHSAS 18001, it will need to migrate to ISO 45001 to maintain the validity of certification. By obtaining an ISO certification, your organization will prove that it cares about the welfare of its employees, and that it is continually making efforts to enhance workplace safety. Your organization will also gain a competitive advantage by improving its brand’s reputation. External stakeholders such as regulators, creditors, investors, board members, customers, and suppliers will respect and value the assurance of an ISO OHS management system that is third-party audited and assured.
In short, adopting the new international standard for occupational health and safety will ensure that your organization:
- Reduces work-related injuries, ill -health and deaths
- Eliminates or minimizes OH&S risks
- Improves OH&S performance and effectiveness
- Protects and improves brand reputation
- Transforms operations from detection to prevention mode
- Improves compliance with current laws and regulatory requirements
