Occupational Health and Safety Management System
ISO 45001 was introduced in 2018 as the world’s first internationally accepted standard for occupational health and safety management systems. The International Labour Organization (ILO) estimates that almost 7,700 persons die every day of work-related diseases or injuries in our world. Developing and implementing an occupational health and safety management system helps organisations in reducing workplace injuries and illness.
This standard can be used by any organisation, regardless of its size, scope, field of business, public or private, to develop and implement an occupational health and safety management system based on accepted international best practices.
ISO 45001 will help organisations develop processes for identifying and controlling workplace hazards, facilitating the engagement and participation of workers in ensuring their own workplace safety, and developing plans and procedures for emergency preparedness and response to workplace incidents.
