Occupational Health & Safety Management System (Accreditation Service for Certifying Bodies)
ISO 45001:2018 specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, and gives guidance for its use, to enable organizations to provide safe and healthy workplaces by preventing work-related injury and ill health, as well as by proactively improving its OH&S performance.
In every company, your employees are your biggest asset and it is the responsibility of every organization to protect the physical and mental health of its workers. In fact, the greatest portion of these fatalities result from health issues, and no injuries. Many people injury or die each day from work-related accidents or diseases every year. So ISO 45001:2018 is applicable to any organization that wishes to establish, implement and maintain an OH&S management system to improve occupational health and safety, eliminate hazards and minimize OH&S risks (including system deficiencies), take advantage of OH&S opportunities, and address OH&S management system nonconformities associated with its activities.
Through the recently introduced ISO 45001:2018 occupational health & safety (OHS) management system, organizations can demonstrate their commitment towards workplace safety and reinforce their reputation with both employees and customers. Employees will see improved workplace conditions and the risk for injury and illness will reduce. As a result of reduced workplace incidents and an improved health and safety culture within the organization, employers will observe an improvement in terms of productivity and efficiency. As part of ISO 45001:2018, leadership will also adopt risk-based thinking and continual improvement in efforts to further improve workplace conditions and meet legal and regulatory requirements.
ISO 45001:2018 is applicable to any organization regardless of its size, type, and activities. It is applicable to the OH&S risks under the organization’s control, taking into account factors such as the context in which the organization operates and the needs and expectations of its workers and other interested parties.
