Need of ISO 45001:2018
ISO 45001 is an ISO standard for management systems of occupational health and safety (OH&S), published in March 2018. The goal of ISO 45001 is the reduction of occupational injuries and diseases
Main difference between ISO 45001 vs OHSAS 18001 ISO 45001 is the newly published standard that supersedes OHSAS 18001. As all organisations currently certified to OHSAS 18001 has to transition to ISO 45001 within a 3 year period, there is a lot of debate on the difference between ISO 45001 vs OHSAS 18001.
The new ISO 45001 standard implements the high level structure, compatible with ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 9001:2015. Therefore, applying and integrating this management system will add values to the organisations and raise the health and safety bar.
