Occupational Health and Safety
What is ISO 45001?
The ISO 45001 standard is the internationally recognised standard for the management of occupational health and safety to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions, all over the world.
ISO 45001 has been designed to be applicable for any business regardless of its size, type and nature. ISO 45001 enables a business, through its Occupational Health and Safety management system, to integrate many aspects of health and safety including employee wellbeing and wellness.
Over 7 600 people die each day from work-related accidents or diseases – that’s over 2.78 million every year*. The burden of occupational injuries and diseases is significant, both for employers and the wider economy, resulting in losses from early retirements, staff absence and rising insurance premiums.The standard was developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts, and follows other generic management system approaches such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. It will take into account other International Standards in this area such as OHSAS 18001, the International Labour Organisation’s ILO-OSH Guidelines, various national standards and the ILO’s international labour standards and conventions.
