What is ISO 45001?

Based on the British standard OHSAS 18001 and other international guidelines on occupational health and safety, ISO 45001 Occupational health and safety management systems — Requirements with guidance for use specifies the requirements for an OH&S MS. By establishing an effective OH&S MS based on this standard, organizations provide safer and healthier work environments.

ISO 45001 is applicable to organizations of all sizes and industries that seek to prevent work-related injuries, diseases, and deaths and promotes the establishment of safe working environments and the continual improvement of occupational health and safety performance.

ISO 45001 shares the High-Level Structure (HLS) similar to other ISO management system standards like ISO 9001 for quality management and ISO 14001 for environmental management which allows organizations to easily integrate two or more management systems. Since its publication in 2018, ISO 45001 replaced the British standard OHSAS 18001.

Why is OH&S MS important for you?

Due to the high number of occupational accidents and deaths, better and more effective practices which guarantee the health and safety of workers in the workplace is a necessity. To mitigate the risk and hazards in the workplace, organizations must prioritize the health and safety of their employees.

Organizations and individuals operating in any industry must collaborate to achieve the same goal, which is to reduce as much as possible the number of accidents that lead to injury or health-related issues.

Furthermore, you will earn a globally recognized certificate on occupational health and safety management, which will demonstrate that you are capable to understand, implement or audit health and safety policies, controls, and processes to reduce work-related injuries.

Why set guidelines and procedures for OH&S?

There is no doubt that poor occupational health and safety practices bring enormous emotional distress, human costs, and economic burden. Therefore, organizations should employ a systematic approach to OH&S management.

Health and safety guidelines and procedures will help organizations to:

  • Prevent illnesses and injuries in the workplace: OH&S guidelines and procedures aim to promote health and safety in the workplace and protect workers from risks and hazards related to their health, safety, and well-being. The implementation of such guidelines and procedures contributes to the reduction of work-related illnesses and injuries.
  • Reduce health and safety hazards and risks

Organizations use different equipment and tools to do their work. As such, proper usage and personal care when working with organizational equipment is essential. Detailed guidelines and concise procedures for equipment use will enable organizations to reduce the health and safety hazards and risks in the workplace.

  • Prevent unwanted consequences

Well-constructed guidelines and procedures will help both workers and organizations to prevent the negative consequences of health and safety risks and hazards.
