An ISO 45001 Health & Safety Management System is a way of doing things which primarily protects your employees and key stakeholders from harm. It protects employees against ill health caused or made worse by work as well as injury through accidents.
It furthermore plays a critical role in ensuring that visitors to your premises, such as customers and contractors, are safe.
Money is just one of the ways in which an accident or work-related sickness can have a cost to your business. It only takes one incident to cause inestimable damage to your reputation. Consequently, each year, millions of days are lost to ill health, taking a heavy toll on productivity. ISO 45001 Health and Safety Management System has been designed to help you reduce these risks and their associated costs.
ISO 45001 has been designed as an internationally recognized replacement for OHSAS 18001 certification. Organizations who currently hold OHAS 18001 certification have until 11th March 2021 to complete a successful migration to ISO 45001:2018.
There are many differences between the two standards.
The main change is that ISO 45001 takes a more proactive attitude to identifying and evaluating risks, whereas OHSAS 18001 is only focused on controlling OH&S hazards and other internal issues. We understand that certification can appear daunting. Our experts are here to make sure that the process is as smooth as possible and that you gain maximum benefits.
