As an employer, it is your duty to provide your employees with a safe and healthy working environment, and it is important for you to demonstrate that your organization meets the necessary health and safety standards. By working in accordance with the ISO 45001 standard, you can take a proactive approach to reducing the risks to your employees and contributing to their well-being. The standard also helps you to identify potential hazards and take measures to manage them. Besides that, ISO 45001 certification enables you to prove to your workforce, customers and suppliers that employee well-being is one of your top priorities and that you comply with the relevant rules and regulations.
ISO 45001 was published in March 2018, as a replacement for OHSAS 18001. There is a three-year transition period for OHSAS 18001-certified organizations. Although ISO 45001 shares many similarities with OHSAS 18001, there have also been some changes.
