International Consultancy Service know about us
ISO 45001:2018 is the International Occupational Health and Safety Management Standard.
It was published in July 2007, superseding ISO 45001:1999, and is intended to address occupational health and safety (OH&S) rather than product safety.
ISO 45001 provides a framework to the effective management of OH&S including compliance with the legislation that applies to your activities and identified hazards.
The standard is applicable to any organisation that wishes to eliminate or minimize risk to employees and other stakeholders who may be exposed to OH&S risks associated with its activities.
Many organizations will have elements required by ISO 45001 already in place which can be supplemented to provide a more cohesive management system to meet the requirements of the standard.
Organisations that implement ISO 45001 have a clear management structure with defined authority and responsibility, clear objectives for improvement, with measurable results and a structured approach to risk assessment. This includes the monitoring of health and safety management failures, auditing of performance and review of policies and objectives.
In a competitive marketplace, your customers are looking for more than just keen pricing from their suppliers. Companies need to demonstrate that their businesses are managed efficiently and responsibly and that they can provide a reliable service without excessive downtime caused by work-related accidents and incidents.
Certifying your BS ISO 45001 management system enables your organization to prove that it conforms to the specification and provides the following benefits:
Customer satisfaction - through delivery of products that consistently meet customer requirements whilst safeguarding their health and property
Reduced operating costs - by decreasing down-time through incidents and ill health and reducing costs associated with legal fees and compensation
Improved stakeholder relationships - by safeguarding the health and property of staff, customers and suppliers
Legal compliance - by understanding how statutory and regulatory requirements impact the organization and its customers
Improved risk management - through clear identification of potential incidents and implementation of controls and measures
Proven business credentials - through independent verification against recognized standards
Ability to win more business - particularly where procurement specifications require certification as a condition to supply
