ISO 45001
Occupational Health & Safety Management

Improve health and safety in the workplace

ISO 45001 is an international standard concerning occupational health and safety.

It’s the first international standard pertaining to occupational health and safety, providing a clear framework for any organisation that wants to improve its health and safety in the workplace.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

ISO 45001 covers all aspects of health in the workplace, including physical, mental, and cognitive health. The standard is based on improving processes, whereas former benchmarks for occupational health and safety have focused on procedures. organisations looking to improve occupational health and safety might be newly implementing ISO 45001 or might be migrating from the previous standard, OHSAS 18001.

ISO 45001 Requirements

ISO 45001 can be used to establish an effective occupational health and safety management system. While there is no requirement to adhere to the standard, it can be an excellent benefit for organisations in many ways. It’s suitable for organisations of all shapes and sizes, and in some cases will go beyond what the law requires to make your workplace safe.

ISO 45001 provides a structured framework for ensuring occupational health and safety. It is heavily informed by OHSAS 18001 but isn’t just an update or revision of the previous standard. The framework helps organisations to ensure their management structure follows the right guidelines to improve health and safety and create a safer workplace. Once changes have been made, an audit is carried out to confirm that the organisation is working within the framework and award ISO 45001 certification.

Why Does Your Organisation Need ISO 45001?

There are several excellent reasons for your organisation to seek ISO 45001 certification. It delivers multiple benefits to your organisation, including:

  • A more resilient organisation thanks to proactive risk prevention, innovation, and continual improvement
  • Better legal and regulatory compliance
  • Reduced business losses
  • Improved reputation for your organisation by showing responsibility and commitment to safe and healthy work

If your organisation wants to demonstrate commitment to managing the safety of workers and others, a management system that is ISO 45001 certified could be right for you. It helps to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and in many cases even goes beyond this. It is internationally recognised and is an excellent framework to use if you want to improve your image with customers and stakeholders. Consider the ISO 45001 standard today for better occupational health and safety management.
