The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) publishes the majority of standards in the world. These standards are often used to regulate manufacturing, business, and quality practices across a variety of different industries. In order for people to trust businesses and their actions, they must be held to the same high standards that are produced by ISO.
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.
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.

Frequently Asked Questions from our Customers
Yes we can, we can assist you with any of the accreditation featured on our website. We have a 100% record of securing any of the accreditation in the first audit for all our customers for the last 13 years.
More to the point, I ask clients how quickly can you start. We can have a consultant working on your accreditation within the hour if you are ready. The only things that take time are the audit dates, these are issued to the client by the certification body so it is out of our control.
This depends on how much the client has in place already. The more they have, the easier it becomes to work on their accreditation. The gap analysis that we carry out is free of charge and afterwards will give you an exact fixed price.
The fixed price will include the following –
- Carry out all the work ( creating documents & processes tailored to your company )
- Attend the audit ( as your expert consultant ) or make the desktop submission.
- Make any corrections that the auditor may highlight to ensure that you obtain your accreditation the first audit.
Initially, we need to talk to you to carry out the free gap analysis. Afterwards, we would require you to forward all the relevant documents. After that, we can complete the work with the minimum of your input, leaving you to concentrate on doing what you do best for the company.
