ISO 45001 replaced BS OHSAS 18001 as the definitive occupational health and safety management system standard, with a 3-year migration period for certified OHSAS 18001 organizations.
With an international standard in place, small, medium and large organizations in any sector can set the benchmark for their health and safety governance, policies and practices across different geographical areas, countries, cultures and jurisdictions. This will promote better communication on shared issues, principles and best practice in global trade.
Third party certification helps to demonstrate that a business is meeting its requirements effectively whilst the process of achieving and maintaining certification helps ensure that it is continually improving across all areas of the organization.
The Occupational Health and Safety Management Self-assessment tool will give you confidence in your OH&S management policies and processes in alignment with the latest requirements introduced with the recent publishing of the final version of 45001:2018. It will allow you to assess your OH&S management system and draw conclusions on your compliance or gaps with the new requirements and structure of ISO 45001:2018.
