Occupational Health & Safety Management System
Businesses face growing compliance demands related to workplace-related illnesses and injuries. ISO 45001 Occupational Health & Safety Management System certification supports organisations in proactively preventing work-related injury and ill health.
Consumer expectations for social responsibility are greater than ever. Injuries and fatalities related to Occupational Health & Safety risks are extremely costly to society. Securing public confidence means placing a health and safety management system at the heart of a sound business strategy.
ISO 45001 is the new international certification standard in Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OHSMS). Adoption of the standard supports you in implementing a comprehensive approach to occupational health and safety, or in improving upon an existing OHSMS. Achieving ISO 45001 certification from Bureau Veritas underscores your organisation’s commitment to protect employees worldwide.

ISO 45001, a complete approach to workplace occupational health and safety
The ISO 45001 standard provides more detailed planning requirements than its predecessor, OHSAS 18001. The new standard expands its scope beyond physical safety to encompass the psychological dangers of burnout, harassment and stress-related illness. It also includes less obvious hazards such as repetitive strain injuries and back pain common in office environments.
Worker participation to enhance effectiveness
A significant new concept is the role of workers in identifying potential health and safety hazards at work. This may take the form of a representative team to ensure health and safety risks are identified at all levels of the organisation. Every clause incorporates risk-based thinking to encourage proactive action aimed at reducing workplace injuries and fatalities.
High-Level Structure creates synergy with other standards
ISO 45001 certification requirements follow the same High-Level Structure as other ISO management system standards, streamlining the implementation of several certification standards simultaneously. It also aligns with existing certification standards such as the International Labour organisation OSH Guidelines and ILO International Labour Standards and Conventions.
WHAT IS OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY?
Occupational health and safety is a multidisciplinary field that maintains and promotes work health and safety and the welfare of people at work. Programs in this field aim to improve the working environment so it can become conducive to employee health and safety, and many others who may be affected by it.
