The release of ISO 45001 by the International Organisation for Standardisation earlier this year has meant that standards bodies across the world are debating whether to adopt the international standards within their own jurisdictions. Does this seem like an overcooked formality?
ISO 45001 represents a global approach and benchmark to occupational health and safety, and there is already significant benefit of having your system requirements align to the High Level Structure. But the main purpose of the forum is to facilitate open discussion from various industries and experts of the merit of adopting this standard within the Australian and New Zealand context, and form agreement as to the full or partial adoption of the new standard.
Our Training Manager, Tom Barham was able to attend the forum in Sydney – check out his Linkedin post below:
