    What is ISO 45001:2018?

    ISO 45001 – Occupational health and safety management systems is the world’s first International Standard for occupational health and safety (OH&S). It provides a framework to increase safety, reduce workplace risks and enhance health and well-being at work and enabling an organisation to proactively improve its OH&S performance.

    The ISO 45001 standard emphasise the important to eliminate hazards and minimise OH&S risks by taking effective preventive and protective measures. The OH&S management system approach is established on the concept of Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA). The PDCA is a process used to achieve continual improvement.

    Consistent with the organisation’s OH&S policy, the intended outcomes of an OH&S management system include:

    • continual improvement of OH&S performance
    • fulfilment of legal requirements and other requirements
    • achievement of OH&S objectives.

    ISO 45001 adopts a risk-based approach that ensures it is effective and undergoes continual improvement to meet the ever-changing context of an organisation.
