ISO 45001 Certification

What is new?

It specifies requirements for an Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) management system and includes guidance for use. It offers a single, clear framework for all organizations wishing to improve their OH&S performance. Directed at the top management of an organization, it aims to provide a safe and healthy workplace for employees and visitors. To achieve this, it is crucial to control all factors that might result in illness, injury, and in extreme cases death, by mitigating adverse effects on the physical, mental and cognitive condition of a person – and ISO 45001 covers all of those aspects

Who is this standard for?

Any organization, regardless of its size, type and activities that wants to:

  • Establish, implement and maintain an OH&S management system to improve occupational health and safety, eliminate or minimize OH&S risks (including system deficiencies), take advantage of OH&S opportunities, and address OH&S management system nonconformities associated with its activities
  • Continually improve its OH&S performance and the achievement of its OH&S objectives
  • Assure itself of conformity with its OH&S policy
  • Demonstrate conformity with the requirements of the standard.

What is the difference between OHSAS and ISO 45001?

There are many differences, but the main change is that ISO 45001 concentrates on the interaction between an organization and its business environment while OHSAS 18001 was focused on managing OH&S hazards and other internal issues. But the standards also diverge in many other ways:

  • ISO 45001 is process-based – OHSAS 18001 is procedure-based
  • This standard replaces OHSAS 18001:2007, an OH&S management system standard developed by a smaller group of international experts outside of ISO.
  • ISO 45001 is dynamic in all clauses – OHSAS 18001 is not
  • ISO 45001 considers both risk and opportunities – OHSAS 18001 deals exclusively with risk
