About this product

Improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions

Occupational injuries and illnesses are a significant burden on both companies and the economy as a whole.
Taking effective preventive and protective measures can play a significant role in counteracting this problem.
They enable an organization or company to provide a safe and healthy workplace for employees whilst
increasing the profitability of companies. To support companies in implementing such initiatives, ISO has
developed a new standard:

ISO 45001:2018-03 – Occupational health and safety management systems - Requirements with
guidance for use

This international standard provides uniform rules governing occupational health and safety management
systems; as a result, the specification OHSAS 18001 has been withdrawn. This document specifies requirements
for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system and is applicable to any organization regardless
of its size, type and activities. It also provides guidelines for its application that empower organizations to prevent
work-related injury and ill health and provide a safe and healthy workplace for employees. Key points:

ISO 45001:2018-03

  • supports organizations in improving their OH&S performance
  • enhances overall working conditions for employees
  • reduces workplace risk
  • helps organizations to comply with legal requirements
  • is applicable to any organization, regardless of its size, type and activities.
  • can be combined with other management system standards, making the path to certification easier.

What can using ISO 45001 do for your organization?

An OH&S management system based on ISO 45001 can improve or support the following measures:

  • the development and implementation of OH&S strategies and objectives
  • the establishment of systematic processes that take into account risks and opportunities,
    legal requirements and additional requirements
  • the identification of the organization's activities and the related OH&S risks;
    minimizing their impact by eliminating the risks or controlling them
  • the design and implementation of operational controls to monitor OH&S risks and requirements
  • an increase in awareness of OH&S risks by all interested parties
  • evaluation of OH&S performance and improvement using appropriate measures
  • ensuring the active participation of employees in OH&S topics

What benefits can this provide to a company or organization?

  • Improve the ability to address regulatory compliance issues.
  • Reduce the total costs incurred as the result of incidents.
  • Reduce downtime and resulting costs due to disruptions in business.
  • Lower the costs of insurance premiums.
  • Cut down on employee absenteeism and turnover.
  • Gain recognition by achieving an international benchmark.
  • Improve your reputation among customers who take social responsibility seriously.

Who should consider using ISO 45001?

The very simple answer is: ALL organizations. Any organization that wishes to establish, implement
and maintain an OH&S management system can benefit from using this standard. This includes small
businesses, multinational corporations, non-profit organizations, foundations, academic institutions
and government ministries. Any organization that has employees can benefit from taking systematic
actions to provide a safe and healthy workplace by eliminating hazards and minimizing OH&S risks.
