ISO 45001:2018 – Where To Begin?

03 July 2018

WHY NOT get a copy of NQA's new ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety Implementation Guide, which was created to support you through your implementation journey.

ISO 45001:2018, is the new International standard which provides a framework, regardless of size, activity and geographical location, to manage and continuously improve Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) within the organization. The risk-based approach standard introduces the common ‘Annex SL’ structure which provides compatibility with other ISO standards including ISO 9001 Quality, ISO 14001 Environment and ISO 27001 Information Security management systems.

By adopting a systematic approach including worker participation, the organization can integrate OH&S within its business processes which will contribute to prevention of accidents and long and short term ill health effects. The standard provides a platform to develop a positive safety culture leading to worker wellbeing. Once the policy framework has been put in place, along with processes to facilitate the organization’s commitment, the standard then asks the organization to audit, review and improve the system including assessment of compliance obligations. This approach provides the organization with both assurance and business continuity.

Standard requirements can significantly help the organization improve internally; by embedding a culture of challenge and continual improvement. With or without a formal OH&S management system, organizations have a moral and legal duty to protect workers from accidents and ill health.

This implementation guide has been created to highlight each section within the standard and break it down into bite sized understandable information.
