So it’s finally here – ISO has formally published its first standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems: ISO 45001:2018.
ISO 45001:2018 is intended to unify the way Health and Safety is managed across the globe. It also provides the same structure and framework as many other management systems standards, such as ISO 9001:2015 for Quality, ISO 14001:2015 for Environmental, and ISO 27001:2013 for Information Security, enabling much greater integration than what was achievable with AS/NZS 4801:2001 or OHSAS 18001:2007.
In order to help you understand the new standard and what it means, we’ve created a small FAQ below:

A key component of any management system is the policy; it is a high level document that should be used to guide the organisation in its operation, as well as keep them on track to meet and exceed their goals.
Some elements of a policy are the same across all disciplines – they should always reflect the individual organisation, they should be communicated and documented, and they should include a commitment to continual improvement. Other requirements will vary – a quality policy should include a commitment to meet and exceed customer expectations, an environmental policy should include a commitment to the prevention of pollution, and an OHS policy should include a commitment to eliminate work-related illness and injury… or should it?
With ISO 45001 just around the corner, we thought we’d take the time to have a look at the new policy requirements in detail.

Whilst there are many changes to the new standards for Quality, Environment and OHS management systems; ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001. Here are four changes to the ISO standards which we think have the potential to create some real positive benefits.

As the third part in our 4-part series about the upcoming changes to the standards for ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001, we’ll be concentrating on three of the biggest changes for organizations, along with specific details of what that the current drafts of the standards require. The three areas we’ll be featuring are the Context of the organisation, Documented information, and Risk-based thinking.
