ISO 45001

ISO 45001

ISO 45001 standard is internationally accepted as a method of assessing and auditing occupational health and safety management systems. Developed by leading trade and international standards bodies, it provides a framework for organisations to instigate proper and effective management of health & safety in the workplace. The current standard OHSAS 18001 will be revised and incorporated into ISO 45001 over a 3 year migration period ending on 12th March 2021. After this date, the OHSAS 18001 standard will be withdrawn. Find out more about the OHSAS 18001 migration.

By having a clearly defined management system in place to identify and control health and safety risks, organisations are able to minimise risks to their workforce and visitors or external contractors on their premises. The standard will enable organisations to put in place processes for continually reviewing and improving occupational health and safety.

Key areas that will be assessed by ISO 45001 certification:

  • Management systems in place
  • Planning and risk assessment
  • Staff training and awareness
  • Communication of safety management systems
  • Response to emergency situations
  • Monitoring and continual improvement

Health and safety management System

ISO_45001_Health-and-safety-proceduresAchieving a structured health and safety management system throughout the organisation will demonstrate your commitment to the welfare of your staff and external parties.

Who is it for?

ISO 45001 is suitable for all types of organisation wanting to become more efficient in managing and reducing accidents in the workplace.

By setting up systems that are assessed by a third party certification body, organisations will prove to their staff, suppliers and customers that they take health and safety seriously.

ISO 45001 accreditation provides a framework to help organisations meet their legal obligations to Health and Safety in the workplace.

The audit can be undertaken by a number of Certification bodies, however, it is important to note that not all auditing organisations are UKAS accredited. If you do not use a UKAS accredited auditor your certification could end up being worthless.

The British Assessment Bureau have UKAS accreditation so before you start, contact us to find out more.
