ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety


The world’s first international standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems

What is ISO 45001?

ISO 45001 is the new international standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OHSMS). It replaces OHSAS 18001.

It enables organisations to manage risk and helps ensure compliance with legislation. It helps create and maintain a safe and healthy working environment for workers, visitors and anyone affected by your organisation’s activities.

Until the publication of ISO 45001 in March 2018, many organisations were using their own national health and safety standards. This new international standard means there is now consistency across the world.

If you already have other management systems in place, then there is good news. ISO 45001 is based on the Annex SL framework, so it integrates seamlessly with other ISO management systems, including ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, and ISO 27001:2015.

 

Who is it for?

ISO 45001 is suited to almost any organisation, of every size, in any sector. If you take safety seriously – and the law requires that you do – then you can benefit from implementing this health and safety management system and securing Alcumus ISOQAR certification.
 

What if we're already OHSAS 18001 certified?

If you are already certified to OHSAS 18001 then you need to migrate to ISO 45001 by 12th March 2021. Please contact us today to talk about the process and the support that Alcumus ISOQAR can provide.

How can ISO 45001 help your organisation?


ISO 45001 will help you meet your legal and moral obligations. It can also produce significant commercial benefits for your organisation.
 

  • A safer place to work – reducing the risk of work related injury and ill health and helping you fulfil your morale duty as a responsible employer

  • Cost savings – efficient management systems, fewer accidents and improved health of your workforce all have a positive financial impact

  • Enables measurement of health and safety performance – helps you establish a robust framework and reporting system

  • Helps to satisfy the core requirements of SSIP when registering as a member of SSIP with ISOQAR

  • International recognition – the new standard is recognised around the world so helps with cross-border operations

Once you decide that certification is right for you, the first steps include learning more about ISO 45001 and then establishing how your organisation compares against the requirements of the standard. This helps identify any gaps or weaknesses in your current health and safety management system so you can assess what work is required to achieve certification.

We recommend you attend a training course with the Alcumus Academy. We also suggest that you consider the support available from our nationwide network of ISO 45001 Consultants who can lead you through implementation.

The next step is to plan the introduction of the health and safety management system into your organisation.

You need to update or renew your processes according to the ISO 45001 standard and ensure the system is fully embedded in your organisation. It’s vital that everyone is working as the system requires. If you need extra support during this stage, an ISO 45001 consultant will be able to advise you and provide you with a gap analysis pre-assessment to make sure you’re ready for certification.

Once you and your consultant are satisfied that your health and safety processes align with the principles set out in ISO 45001, it’s time to think about certification.
