We have delivered the first in a series of workshops being run around the country addressing the upcoming changes to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and new ISO 45001. The overwhelming takeaway from the first seminar is Don’t Panic! Rather than viewing the changes as something of a headache to be dealt with, perhaps ISO has provided the opportunity to embrace the changes.
The changes being introduced by ISO seem to be encouraging organisations to no longer treat their QMS, EMS and OH&S Systems as an add-on, but strategically, as an opportunity to consider compliance as a tool to better business planning and implementation, resulting in an efficient, safe, environmentally responsible organisation. Life-cycle thinking, Risked-based thinking, and Leadership are just some of the concepts being introduced. To find out how these will impact on your organisation, please follow the link below.
