ISO 45001 is to replace OHSAS 18001: Occupational Health and Safety Management Training

The Final Standard of ISO 45001 will be published around April 2018 and will replace OHSAS 18001. If you want to be ahead of the game and transition, this is the golden opportunity to do so.

What is ISO 45001?

ISO 45001 is a newly developed international standard, which outlines the requirements for occupational health and safety. The standard is applicable to organisations of all sizes, whose aim is to manage the prevention of workplace injuries, ill-health, and deaths. In addition, ISO 45001 aims to establish a safe working environment and continual improvement of occupational health and safety performance. ISO 45001 will replace OHSAS 18001 and will become the next “to go” standard for occupational health and safety.

Why is Occupational Health and Safety Management important for you?

Regardless of what industry you are in, accidents that lead to injury or health-related issues will always occur. Therefore, whether you are an employee, manager or business owner, you will always share the same goal- minimise the number of casualties at work. ISO 45001 provides you with a framework to identify, control and prevent work-related injuries.

By obtaining an ISO 45001 certification you will prove that you care about the well-being of employees and that you are continually making efforts to enhance their welfare. Furthermore, you will earn a globally recognised certificate on Occupational Health and Safety Management, which will prove that you are aware of the policies and processes needed to reduce workplace injuries. You will also gain a competitive advantage by improving your brand’s reputation and increasing your capacity.
