ISO 45001 Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S)



ISO 45001 is an ISO standard for management systems of occupational health and safety (OH&S), published in March 2018. The goal of ISO 45001 is the reduction of occupational injuries and diseases.

The standard is based on OHSAS 18001, conventions and guidelines of the International Labour Organization including ILO OSH 2001, and national standards. It includes elements that are additional to BS OHSAS 18001 which it is replacing over a three-year migration period from 2018 to 2021.

ISO 45001 also follows the High Level Structure of other ISO standards like ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 which makes integration of these standards much easier.

Customer Benefits

The ISO 45001 Standard specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system to enable an organization to proactively improve its OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill-health. The benefits are as follows:

Developing and implementing an OH&S policy and OH&S objectives
Establishing systematic processes which consider its “context” and which consider its risks and opportunities, and its legal and other requirements
Determining the hazards and OH&S risks associated with its activities; seeking to eliminate them, or putting in controls to minimize their potential effects
Establishing operational controls to manage its OH&S risks and its legal and other requirements
increasing awareness of OH&S risks
Evaluating its OH&S performance and seeking to improve it, through taking appropriate actions
