As of the 12th of March 2018, ISO 45001:2018 is the replacement of OHSAS 18001:2007.
Across the world over 7,600 people die each day from work-related accidents or diseases. ISO realised there needed to an International framework for the whole world to follow. This will ultimately help organisations to improve employee safety, reduce work place risks and ultimately create better and safer working conditions.
The importance of ISO 45001:2018
It is the world’s first OH&S International standard. Providing an excellent framework for a safe and healthy workplace, it will help thousands of organisations prevent work-related injuries, ill health and death.
It will follow a similar structure as 18001, however, it will have an enhanced compatibility with other standards, meaning it’s easier to implement and integrate to a management system. To learn the true extent of the changes and what’s required to be ISO 45001 compliant, we advise speaking with a qualified consultant who can give you the right guidance.
