What is ISO 45001?

ISO 45001 is the international standard for occupational health and safety (OH&S) management. Increasingly a regulatory requirement in many countries, it helps organizations demonstrate their internal and external commitment to workplace safety and reinforce their business’ reputation with employees and customers.

Things change; that is a fact. While external factors that are often out of our control may impact our world of work, one thing remains constant; you want your employees to be safe.

ISO 45001 certification can help you achieve this by reducing workplace related risks and providing a solid framework for the health, safety and wellbeing of your employees – irrespective of your organization’s size, sector or geographical location.

In response to the challenges posed by COVID-19, the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) has extended the migration deadline for ISO 45001 certification. Existing OHSAS 18001 certificates can now be extended for up to six months. This means that the period for migrating accredited certifications from OHSAS 18001:2007 to ISO 45001:2018 has been extended to September 2021.

Benefits of ISO 45001 certification

A healthier and safer workforce

ISO 45001 aims to reduce work related incidents, and focuses on creating a health and safety culture, whereby employees are encouraged to take an active role in their own OH&S. This – underpinned by strong leadership with demonstrable commitment to OH&S – helps to create a culture of safety, resulting in reduced staff turnover, increased morale and improved staff retention rates – as well as making their work environment both safer and healthier.

Maximize productivity

ISO 45001 helps your organization understand risk profiles through a systematic process to keep your workforce healthy and safe, thereby reducing absenteeism and staff turnover, leading to increased productivity.

Compliance and a commitment to excellence

ISO 45001 provides a clear framework to manage your regulatory and legal obligations. Implementing a robust OH&S management system can help to deliver stakeholder confidence, thereby improving your brand reputation and providing a competitive advantage when bidding for contracts.

Simple integration

ISO 45001 easily integrates with all new and revised ISO managements system standards, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, as it shares the same high-level text and common structure.
