As of the 12th of March 2018, ISO 45001:2018 is the replacement of OHSAS 18001:2007.
Across the world over 7,600 people die each day from work-related accidents or diseases. ISO realised there needed to an International framework for the whole world to follow. This will ultimately help organizations to improve employee safety, reduce work place risks and ultimately create better and safer working conditions.
What is ISO 45001?
It is the worlds first OH&S International standard. Providing an excellent framework for a safe and health workplace, it will help thousands of organisations prevent work-related injury’s, ill health and death.
It will follow a similar structure as 18001 however it will have an enhanced compatibility with other standards, meaning it’s easier to implement and integrate to a management system. To learn the true extent of the changes and what’s required to be ISO 45001 Compliant, I’d advise speaking with a qualified consultant who can give you the right guidance.
