ISO 45001:2018 Health and Safety Management Systems sets the minimum standard of practice to protect employees worldwide. Health and safety in the workplace are the number one concern of most businesses, yet still deaths and injuries occur. ISO 45001, Occupational health and safety management systems – Requirements with guidance for use, is the world’s first International Standard for occupational health and safety (OH&S).It provides a framework to increase safety, reduce workplace risks and enhance health and well-being at work, enabling an organization to proactively improve its OH&S performance. ISO 45001 is universal and can be applied to any workplace regardless of industry.
What about certification?
Certification to ISO 45001 is not a requirement of the standard but can be a useful tool to demonstrate that you meet its criteria. If you are already certified to OHSAS 18001, and while it is a very different standard, you will already have some of the necessary tools and systems in place to implement ISO 45001.
When your organization is ISO 45001 certified, it establishes your commitment to the health and welfare of your management and employees. Your certification provides credibility to external parties, including clients and stakeholders. ISO 45001 provides a structured health and safety management system standard to help your organization.
Already certificated to OHSAS 18001?
The new ISO 45001 standard will eventually replace OHSAS 18001 but the standard won’t be phased out for good until 2021.
If you are currently certificated to the OHSAS 18001 standard then you will need to transition to the ISO 45001 requirements.
Unlike with the previous OHSAS 18001 certification, ISO 45001 is an accredited standard. Working with Exsolution Group for your certification proves your commitment to excellence.
