ISO 45001 is the new international standard for occupational health and safety management replacing the OHSAS 18001 standard. The standard reduces workplace risks to improve employee safety.
Gaining the ISO 45001 certification allows you to demonstrate that your business operates a best-practice Occupational Health and Safety Management System – reducing the likelihood of accidents and breaches of legislation, as well as improving your organisation’s overall performance.
This Standard surpasses many existing health and safety standards because it has been developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts. It takes into account other international standards in this area such as OHSAS 18001, the International Labour Organization’s ILO-OSH Guidelines, various national standards and the ILO’s international labour standards and conventions. This makes it one of the most valuable Health and Safety Management Systems available to date.
ISO 45001 is designed to prevent work-related injury and ill-health and to provide safe and healthy workplaces.
As an international standard, ISO 45001 crosses geographic, political, economic, commercial and social boundaries. This sets a single benchmark for the management of occupational health and safety.So if your organization operates or trades internationally, you can work to a single standard which can simplify your business.
Whether you are currently working to BS OSHAS 18001 or country specific standards such as ANSI/ASSE Z10 2012, CAN/CSA-Z1000-14, AS/NZS 48001:2001 or others. Or if you are new to occupational health and safety management it’s a great framework to put into your business to build organizational resilience.
Organizations that are committed to sustainability are increasingly aligning their corporate strategies to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Accredited certification of ISO 45001, the international occupational health and safety management system, demonstrates an organization’s commitment to ensuring decent work conditions, health, wellbeing and equality practices. For organizations seeking to enhance their ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) profile, implementation of ISO 45001 and its alignment to the SDGs sends a powerful message to shareholders and stakeholders including employees, that they truly care for their people.
The standard is flexible and can be adapted to manage occupational health and safety and suits a wide range of organizations including:
- Large organizations and entreprises
- Small and medium-sized entreprises
- Public and not-for-profit organizations
- Non-government organizations (NGOs) and charities

Implementation of ISO 45001 in your organisation paves a way towards fewer workplace injuries and illnesses through a proactive approach to hazard identification and risk assessment which in turn leads to improved organisational health and safety. With ISO 45001 certification, companies demonstrate that they have taken every crucial step to protect the workers by eliminating ineffective practices which helps the employees to deliver more in a stipulated time due to effective systems in place.
- Context of the Organisation – The context of the organisation refers to internal and external factors that affect your business. In order for your OH&S management system to be relevant and practical for the people responsible, these internal and external factors need to be determined. To meet this requirement, you will also need to know who will be affected by these issues and how. This includes visitors and sub-contractors.
- Leadership – To work towards OH&S objectives in a practical way, you will need to communicate roles and responsibilities clearly. Your leadership team needs to assume responsibility for the OH&S management system and ensure your staff have the tools and resources they need to run it successfully.
- Planning – This requirement highlights your business’ need to adapt and react to changes. To do so, you will need to set out a clear plan for spotting, evaluating and managing OH&S risks. You will also need to demonstrate how this will be communicated to key personnel and how you will manage the relevant documentation.
- Support – To meet this requirement, you will need to provide the tools and resources needed to implement, run and maintain your OH&S management system. This could include providing training to key staff, buying personal protective equipment (PPE) and clearly communicating your goals.
- Operation – This requirement prompts you to assess existing procedures and take note of legal obligations. Once you have the knowledge, you will need to plan how to identify and respond to emergencies, risks and opportunities. Regular, formal risk assessments can be a key part of this requirement
- Performance Evaluation – To know if you are performing well, you will need to monitor and evaluate your occupational health & safety performance by creating criteria for measuring it. This evidence will then show that your OH&S management system is working.
- Improvement – Continual improvement is a key requirement of this Standard. This shows that you have an eye on the future and are always in pursuit of a better performance. This can be achieved through regular monitoring and evaluation as well as appropriate corrective actions.
