ISO 45001:2018 Has Now Been Released

14/03/18

ISO 45001:2018 has been prepared based on the “High Level Structure”. This comprehensive approach allows full integration with other management systems, such as ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.

Human capital is an organisation’s greatest asset. Thus the health, safety and well-being of your employees, regardless of your activity and size, is fundamental to the success of your business. Accidents and stressful situations have a negative impact on the performance an organisation, both in terms of output (i.e. sick leave and absenteeism) and reputation.

ISO 45001:2018 replaces OHSAS 18001 and is anticipated to replace AS/NZS 4801. The Standards Australia Technical Committee is in the process of determining the best option for local adoption. Bureau Veritas will keep you informed as this decision progresses.

The International Accreditation Forum (IAF) has developed migration requirements to help certified organisations, certification bodies, accreditation bodies and other interested parties to migrate to ISO 45001 from OHSAS 18001. There will be a three-year migration period from the publication date of ISO 45001:2018.
