What You Need to Know About ISO 45001


Published in March 2018, ISO 45001 is the world’s first international occupational health and safety management system. This benchmark standard is suitable for organizations in any sector and simplifies operations for organizations that trade internationally. The new standard replaces OHSAS 18001 and other country-specific standards.

What is ISO 45001:2018?

ISO 45001 is an International Standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, with guidance for its use, to enable an organization to proactively improve its OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill-health. ISO 45001 documentation kits are designed based on good Occupational Health & Safety practices including Occupational Health & Safety planning, health & safety review, and implementation. The ISO 45001 Documents that we provide can be effectively used to educate vendors, employees, and health & safety groups for the establishment of the OH&SMS System.

Benefits of using ISO 45001:2018

An ISO 45001 based OH&S management system will enable an organization to improve its OH&S performance by:

        Developing and implementing an OH&S policy and OH&S objectives

        Establishing systematic processes which consider its “context” and which take into account

        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 its OH&S risks

        Evaluating its OH&S performance and seeking to improve it, through taking appropriate actions

        Ensuring workers take an active role in OH&S matters

In combination, these measures will ensure that an organization’s reputation as a safe place to work will be promoted, and can have more direct benefits, such as:
