Occupational health and safety management system
Occupational safety issues may seem exaggerated until the first accident, which causes negative publicity and material and moral damage to the organization. An occupational health and safety management system is a very important part of a organization ’s management, and it will pay off in a short period of time.
The implementation of a comprehensible and verifiable work safety system, which fulfills more than the minimum legal requirements, allows to improve the working conditions and safety of the organization’s employees by controlling and reducing potential risks and harm.
What is ISO 45001:2018?
ISO 45001:2018 is an international occupational health and safety management system standard, which has been developed using the ISO High-Level Structure (HLS). The HLS is common to all new ISO standards and provides the best compatibility of the ISO 45001 standard with other standards, easing the implementation and integration of the management system and providing greater value to users.
The ISO 45001 certification confirms excellent performance in the field of occupational health and safety management and demonstrates effective risk management, while promoting the well-being of employees and guaranteeing a safe working environment. ISO 45001 is not just about protecting workers, as it also affects employers by reducing the potential risk of financial, criminal, and civil liability for serious incidents.
