To build a positive health and safety culture, ISO 45001 – the international management system standard for OHS – requires collaboration at many levels between management, workers, and worker representatives, where they exist. On top of meeting regulatory requirements for consultation, ISO 45001 sets out how worker participation plays a significant role in improving OHS performance.

"Traditionally, workers have been involved in some aspects of health and safety, like risk assessment. ISO 45001 goes well beyond this, effectively saying that they should be consulted and participate in all aspects of the OH&S management system. This approach eliminates the ‘not invented here’ perception and instead invites workers to help shape and influence the system to ensure that everyone is better protected."
