In March 2018, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) released a new standard for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Management Systems: ISO 45001. This standard is designed to provide a structure to help companies reduce their workplace risks and improve employee safety.
Alta can provide full guidance on obtaining the ISO45001 certification through the following steps:
Assess the facility
Define an action plan to meet the certification requirement
Provide support during implementation
Audit the management system to evaluate effectiveness
This standard is compatible with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, allowing businesses to integrate their OH&S Management System with Quality Management and Environmental Management Systems.
The benefits for implementing ISO 45001 include:
Enhancing OH&S continuous improvement performance
Fulfilling legal requirements
Identifying OH&S risks and establishing operational controls to manage the risks
Setting OH&S objectives and tracking mechanisms
Increasing workers involvement with OH&S matters
