ISO 45001 – Occupational Health and Safety Management System

Further details

ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System) will help organizations improve health and safety performance and ultimately save lives.

ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System) is a newly developed international standard, which outlines the requirements for occupational health and safety. The standard is applicable to organizations of all sizes, whose aim is to manage the prevention of workplace injuries, ill-health, and deaths. In addition, ISO 45001 aims to establish a safe working environment and continual improvement of occupational health and safety performance. ISO 45001 will replace OHSAS 18001 and will become the next “to go” standard for occupational health and safety.

ISO 45001, Occupational Health and Safety provides the requirements for implementing a management system and framework for reducing the risk of injury and illness to employees. This standard will be a completely desirable replacement for the OHSAS 18001 standard, and after the introduction of organizations will implement this standard and receive ISO 45001 certification.

Since many organizations use ISO standards, it is much easier to integrate ISO 45001 as a safety and health tool with other standards (especially in small organizations).

ISO 45001 and OHSAS 18001 Standard Differences:

These differences are more in line with ISO 45001’s focus on the functional nature of the organization, which emphasizes the role and responsibility of the leadership and senior management of the organization.

In this new standard, the organization should take a closer look at its health and safety issues and take responsibility for what the community expects.

Organizations should treat their suppliers and contractors the same way, and note that signing a contract is not a strict liability of the organization for what the contractors or suppliers do.

For example: Suppliers and contractors must also take responsibility for the impact their activities have on their neighbors in the surrounding environment. This is much broader than the focus on the internal staff of the organization.

Advantages of ISO45001:

Approximately 3.2 million people are killed each year due to occupational accidents or illnesses. Therefore, effective and robust implementation of these standards reduces the supposition of risks and consequently reduces occupational accidents and diseases. In addition to reducing the costs associated with insurance, or blood money for organizations, due to the needs and needs of individuals, a positive organizational culture is created in the organization.
