Safety Management Standard
The new ISO 45001:2018 Safety Management Standard helps those that wish to improve employee safety, reducing workplace risks and creating better, safer working conditions. Health and safety in the workplace is a top concern for most businesses, yet deaths and injuries still occur. ISO 45001:2018 can be used by all organisations, regardless of size, industry or nature.
The standard guides organisations to put in place a practical occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system. ISO 45001:2018 is structured in a similar way to other ISO management systems including ISO 14001:2015 or ISO 9001:2015 and can be easy integrated with your Quality and Environmental management systems.
In 2018, Standards Australia adopted ISO 45001:2018 as the new occupational health and safety management standard. Australian businesses were then warned that existing safety standard AS/NZS 4801:2001 would be phased out and that they would be given a few years to transition to ISO 45001:2018.
