ISO 45001:2018 has been prepared based on the “High Level Structure”. This comprehensive approach enabled full integration with other management systems, such as ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.
Your organization’s human capital is your greatest asset, which is why the health and well-being of your employees, regardless of your activity and size, is one of the main keys for the success of your business. Accidents and stressful situations have a negative impact on the performance of your organization, both in terms of output -sick leave and absenteeism- and reputation.
ISO 45001:2018 replaces the British standard OHSAS 18001. The implementation of ISO 45001:2018 is a strategic and operational decision for your company, allowing you to obtain many benefits:
. Reduce injuries, health problems and even fatalities due to work practices.
. Develop and disseminate of the work health and safety policy with clear leadership by management
. Demonstrate that the audited company complies with current legislation.
. Improve the organization’s image and reputation.
. Implement a more precise definition of the occupational health and safety objectives of an organization.
. Motivate employees, boost consultation and participation of the company’s stakeholders.
. Emphasize leadership from management to comply with the management system requirements.
. Improve risk control and occupational health and safety performance and results.
The International Accreditation Forum (IAF) has developed the migration requirements to help certified organizations, certification bodies, accreditation bodies and other interested parties to migrate to ISO 45001. There will be a three-year migration period.
