The New ISO 45001 Standard Is Here!

The New ISO 45001 Standard Is Here!


The world’s much anticipated International Standard for occupational health and safety (OH&S) has now been published.

Whether you are an employee, a manager or a business owner, you share a common goal – you don’t want anyone to get hurt on the job.

According to 2017 calculations by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), 2.78 million fatal accidents occur at work yearly. This means that, every day, almost 7 700 persons die of work-related diseases or injuries. Additionally, there are some 374 million non-fatal work-related injuries and illnesses each year, many of these resulting in extended absences from work.

ISO 45001 hopes to change that. It provides governmental agencies, industry and other affected stakeholders with effective, usable guidance for improving worker safety in countries around the world. By means of an easy-to-use framework, it can be applied to both captive and partner factories and production facilities, regardless of their location

ISO 45001 is the new ISO standard for occupational health and safety (OH&S). It has become one of the most eagerly awaited standards in the world, and is set to drastically improve levels of workplace safety.

While ISO 45001 draws on OHSAS 18001 – the former benchmark for OH&S – it is a new and distinct standard, not a revision or update, and is due to be phased in gradually over the next three years. Organizations will therefore need to revise their current thinking and work practices in order to maintain organizational compliance.

The New ISO 45001 Standard Is Here!

What About OHSAS 18001?

Migrating from OHSAS 18001 to the new International Standard ISO 45001 may have its challenges, but with careful planning, checking and commitment, organisations and their employees will enjoy the benefits of improved health and safety management systems.
