ISO 45001: Occupational Health and Safety Standard

What is ISO 45001?

ISO 45001 stands as the global benchmark for occupational health and safety, aiming to safeguard both employees and visitors from work-related accidents and illnesses. This certification emerged to counteract any elements that could jeopardize the well-being of workers and the prosperity of businesses. Crafted by a dedicated committee of health and safety management specialists, ISO 45001 draws insights from various system management methodologies, including ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Moreover, it integrates existing standards such as OHSAS 18001 and embraces the labor standards and safety guidelines established by the International Labour Organization (ILO).

Ensuring Safety: ISO 45001’s Purpose

Primarily targeting senior management, ISO 45001 strives to assist businesses in fostering a safe and healthy work environment for their workforce and all visitors. This objective hinges on managing factors that could lead to injuries, illnesses, or, in severe cases, fatalities. Consequently, ISO 45001 focuses on mitigating any elements that threaten the physical or mental well-being of workers.

Addressing Global Challenges

Tragically, preventable workplace incidents claim thousands of lives daily. According to the ISO and the ILO, over 2.7 million deaths occur worldwide due to occupational accidents annually. Furthermore, there are approximately 374 million non-fatal injuries each year, resulting in four or more days of work absences.

A Milestone in Safety Management

According to numerous health and safety experts, ISO 45001 represents a groundbreaking achievement. For the first time on a global scale, businesses of all sizes can access a unified framework offering a clear path to enhancing occupational health and safety measures.

Transitioning from OHSAS 18001

ISO 45001 draws heavily from OHSAS 18001 but signifies more than a mere revision or update. Organizations across various industries must adhere to specific protocols to maintain compliance and attain ISO 45001 certification.

Global Recognition and Adoption

The year 2020 witnessed a remarkable 97.3% surge in worldwide ISO 45001 certifications, underscoring the increasing significance of UKAS-accredited certification in contemporary times, as per the latest ISO Survey.
