ISO 45001 – OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY

ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS)

What is ISO 45001?

ISO 45001:2018 is the international standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OHSMS). It has replaced OHSAS 18001.

By implementing the standard you can protect the health, safety and wellbeing of your employees, visitors and anyone affected by your organisation’s activities. It’s also an excellent way to establish legal compliance.

Putting an occupational health and safety management system in place is more important than ever. Senior managers are now held personally responsible for health and safety in their organisations. In addition, new sentencing guidelines introduced in 2016 have resulted in harsher punishment for failures. The standard provides protection for you, your employees and your organisation. It’s the best way of managing risk, avoiding fines and reducing employee absence. It all adds up to better business performance.

If you already have other management systems in place, then putting an additional one in place can be straightforward. The standard is based on the Annex SL framework, meaning it shares a common structure and many elements with the other major standards. So, it integrates seamlessly with other ISO management systems including ISO 9001ISO 14001, and ISO 27001.

Why choose ISO 45001?

Make Sure Your ISO 45001 Certificate is UKAS Accredited

Not all certificates are equal. You need to make sure your certificate is issued by a body that has been accredited by the government-recognised United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).

A UKAS accredited certification body like ISOQAR undergoes regular rigorous inspections by UKAS to check we are operating to the highest standards.

This means that when you hold a certificate from a UKAS accredited body, you can be sure it’s more meaningful. Certificates that are issued by bodies which are not UKAS accredited are often not accepted.

UKAS accredited certificates are accepted across the world as evidence that you meet global standards of best practice.
