ISO 45001 - Health & Safety Management Systems
ISO 45001 is the new standard used to help manage risk to reduce accidents, comply with legislation and improve performance. This standard has replaced OHSAS 18001.
Organisations are coming under increasing commercial and regulatory pressures to control risk from their operations. Most organisations now ensure they comply with the appropriate legislation, with many realising the benefits a formalised approach to health and safety management systems can bring.
The former British Standard OHSAS 18001 has now been replaced with ISO 45001 which is the worlds first International Standard for occupational health and safety.
Occupational health and safety in the workplace is a major concern for all organisations. This standard is applicable to all types of organisation regardless of industry or size and assists in providing a robust set of requirements designed for improving workplace safety with the aim of reducing injury, illness and death.
Implementing this standard enables an organisation to proactively improve its occupational health and safety performance.
If your organisation is already certificated to OHSAS 18001 you have until 2021 to migrate to ISO 45001.
The benefits of ISO 45001 include:
The improvement of communication across your organisation to identify and eliminate hazards, control risks and identify opportunities for improvement.
Reduce injuries and illness through proactive risk prevention and continual improvement.
Legal and regulatory compliance while reducing business losses.
