ISO 45001 OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY MANAGEMENT
ISO 45001:2018 Certification
ISO 45001 is an international standard for occupational health and safety. In gaining this certification with the guidance of CERT you will be putting your organisation in the position to compete at the highest international level.
Our expert team will guide you through every step of the certification process by assessing your current systems, training and assisting with application and subsequent compliance assessment.
ISO 45001 provides requirements for an effective occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system. This system will help to reduce injuries and accidents in your workplace, as well as continually improve the OH&S performance of your business. ISO 45001 was published by ISO to replace OHSAS 18001.
If your business is OHSAS 18001 certified, you will need to update to this new standard.
The ISO 45001 international standard suits businesses of all types and sizes and can easily integrate with an existing management system.
Understanding the difference between OHSAS 18001, ISO 45001 & AS/NZS 4801
ISO 45001 is the international standard. If you are OHSAS 18001 certified your business will need to migrate to the new standard as the previous standard will be withdrawn.
OHSAS 18001 was originally a standard developed by certification bodies in Britain and was used worldwide.
OHSAS 18001 was a procedure based standard, whilst ISO 45001 is process based and considers risks and opportunities (in common with the other major ISO standards). ISO 45001 is a far more holistic approach to safety in the workplace, taking into consideration internal and external risks and opportunities, whereas OHSAS 18001 primarily focused on internal risks.
OHSAS 18001 has been withdrawn and replaced by the new international Standard for OHS, ISO 45001. Organisations currently certified to OHSAS 18001 will need to migrate to ISO45001 by March 2021 to retain certification recognition.
