ISO 45001 certification update…


Date: 8 August 2017


ISO 45001 is the new international standard for occupational health and safety (OH&S) management and will replace the existing OHSAS 18001 standard


What’s new with ISO 45001?

Annex SL structure. As with all new and revised ISO standards, ISO 45001 will follow the same common terminology and structure of Annex SL. This is the single major difference between OHSAS 18001 and ISO 45001.


Align national OH&S standards. The overall aim of ISO 45001 is the same as OHSAS 18001. It is being produced to align the range of national health and safety management system standards into one standard with the intention of ruling-out confusion and market fragmentation.


What’s being revised?

Context of Organisation. With ISO 45001 using Annex SL, there becomes a much stronger focus on the context of an organisation. Based on CD2, organisations should not only consider what health and safety issues directly impact on them, but also take into account the wider society and how their work may impact on the surrounding communities.


Top management. With ISO 45001, the role of health and safety will not become the sole responsibility of the Health and Safety Manager. Additionally, CD2 expects OH&S aspects to be integrated into the structure of an organisation, ensuring buy-in from top management and greater employee contribution.
