ISO 45001 : 2018 Certification
The world’s first international Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) Management System Standard
Why is ISO 45001:2018 Certification important for your Business?
ISO 45001, the world’s most anticipated standard for workplace health and safety systems was published on 12 March 2018. ISO 45001 is the newest Occupational Health and Safety Management System standard, aligned with both ISO 9001 (Quality Management) and ISO 14001 (Environment Management), it is intended to replace OHSAS 18001 and AS/NZS 4801.
Over 7 600 people die each day from work-related accidents or diseases – that’s over 2.78 million every year! Workplace safety is an important aspect for organisations in the world.
Organisations strive to ensure their workplace and personnel are safe. We now have the capacity to achieve this on a united front with the introduction of ISO 45001. No matter where we are in the world, we now have an International Standard that allows organisations to adopt one system that will cover multiple countries.
When an organisation implements ISO 45001, they are able to align their processes with other standards that have been implemented.
ISO 45001 has been designed to ensure top management and personnel at all levels are actively participating in OH&S. This will ensure a safer workplace and increase business credentials.
