ISO 45001

Posted on: April 20th, 2017 by IQS_Admin No Comments

ISO 45001 replacing OHSAS 18001:2007 is due to be released at the end of 2017.

Proposed content should include:-

  • workers now include all people within an organisation
  • emphasis will be on leadership,
  • training and developing,
  • Measuring and monitoring of performance.
  • Hazards will now include situations and circumstances which require foresight and planning not just reaction to incident specific risks.
  • need to consult both the workforce and external interested third parties
  • This extends the notion of scope and context with the emphasis on effective consultation and mandatory KPIs.
  • risks and opportunities apply not just to H & S but to the whole organisation’s business functions
