Unprepared For ISO 45001? Download Our Free White Paper

26/04/18


The new international standard in occupational health and safety management systems, ISO 45001:2018, has now been published – and Bureau Veritas has released a brand new white paper to support organisations with their transition.

Replacing the current OSHAS 18001, the new standard is intended to help organisations of all types and sizes create and implement systems that proactively prevent work-related injury and ill health. A three year transition period has now started, after which OHAS 18001 certificates will expire and organisations must achieve certification to ISO 45001.

Our paper explains the benefits of adopting a health and safety management system, laying out the requirements of the new standard and exploring the advantages of achieving certification. It also provides specific information on key differences with existing occupational health and safety management standards.

Framework for excellence

Gregg Elwell, UK technical manager for Bureau Veritas, said: “270 million workers suffer occupational accidents each year that lead to absences from work for three days or more, and there are 6,000 fatalities every single day globally through work related accidents or disease.

“Consumers are also becoming more and more demanding of the companies from which they buy products and services, so it is more important than ever to take proactive steps to improve health and safety management.

“The new standards create a new framework for excellence and, for the first time, align occupational health and safety certification with other global ISO-certified management systems.

“We’re already supporting our clients with their transition to ISO 45001 through our LEAD platform but this white paper gives a clear, precise and insightful overview of the changes and what they mean – the perfect starting point for any organisation.”
