Decoding ISO 45001
the new international standard for occupational health and safety management systems

A new international standard for occupational health and safety

Increased global trade brings new health and safety challenges, which have driven the need for an international OH&S management system standard, to enable global benchmarking and to raise the bar for health and safety in the workplace. For this reason, ISO have developed an international standard that will be applicable to organisations of any size, sector or location.

ISO 45001 will be a voluntary standard that is not legally binding but aims to help organisations to manage their OH&S risks and improve their performance to make people safer and healthier. Certification will help organisations to demonstrate that they have a robust OH&S system in place, boosting their reputation to customers and employees alike.

In January 2018, ISO 45001 was approved following an overwhelming final vote of 93% by the ISO member National Standard Bodies (NSBs). OHSAS 18001 will be withdrawn on publication of ISO 45001:2018, which is expected in March 2018 and there will be a three-year migration period from the date of publication.
