An Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) is a fundamental part of an organization’s risk management strategy. Implementing an OHSMS enables an organization to:
- Protect its workforce and others under its control
- Comply with legal requirements
- Facilitate continual improvement
ISO 45001 can be aligned with other management systems standards, such as ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. ISO 45001 will be published by the end of Q1 2018.
ISO 45001:2018 specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, and gives guidance for its use, to enable organizations to provide safe and healthy workplaces by preventing work-related injury and ill health, as well as by proactively improving its OH&S performance.
An effective occupational health and safety management system will help you to protect and enhance your most important asset, your people, to drive business excellence.
This new standard can help deliver the following benefits:
ISO 45001 benefits
Increase organisational resilience through proactive risk prevention, innovation and continual improvement
Strengthening of legal and regulatory compliance whilst reducing business losses
Demonstrates brand responsibility by committing to safe, healthy and sustainable work
One global occupational health and safety system for all businesses, of all sizes.
