ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety Management

We are delighted to announce that we are now doing audits for ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety Management systems.

Approximately 7,600 people die every day from work-related accidents or illnesses – that’s 2.78 million every year!

The burden of occupational injuries and diseases is significant, both for employers and the wider economy, resulting in losses through early retirements, staff absence and rising insurance premiums.

To combat this problem, ISO has developed the ISO 45001, Occupational Health & Safety Management System, which provides a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better and safer working conditions for everyone. By preventing work-related injury and ill health to workers, and by eliminating hazards and taking effective preventative and protective measures, the organisation will thus provide a safe and healthy workplace.

The standard was developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts, and follows other generic management systems such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. It will take into account other International Standards including OHSAS 18001, the ILO-OSH Guidelines along with various national standards and conventions.

In essence, implementing an ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety management system enables an organisation to manage its occupational health & safety risks and improve the overall health & safety performance of the organisation.
