ISO 45001 is an internationally recognised standard for occupational health and safety management systems (OH&S).
It provides a framework and guidelines that organisations can follow to proactively manage occupational health and safety risks, promote a safe working environment, and protect the well-being of employees and other stakeholders.
The ISO 45001 standard is designed to help organisations establish and maintain effective OH&S management systems that prevent work-related injuries, illnesses, and fatalities, while also fostering a culture of safety and continual improvement.

Key elements of ISO 45001 include:
Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment: Organisations are required to systematically identify and assess workplace hazards, evaluate risks, and implement controls to eliminate or minimize those risks.
Legal Compliance: The standard helps organizations understand and comply with applicable OH&S laws, regulations, and other requirements.
Objectives and Targets: Organisations establish OH&S objectives and targets that are measurable, achievable, and aligned with their commitment to improvement and prevention.
Resources and Competence: Organisations ensure that they have the necessary resources, including competent personnel, to implement and maintain the OH&S management system effectively.
Communication and Participation: The standard emphasizes the importance of effective communication and engagement with employees and other relevant stakeholders to promote a culture of safety and ensure their participation in OH&S matters.
Incident Investigation and Emergency Preparedness: Organisations are required to investigate incidents, near misses, and occupational illnesses, and implement corrective and preventive actions. They also develop emergency response plans to handle potential emergencies and crises.
Performance Evaluation: Organisations monitor and measure their OH&S performance, conduct internal audits, and periodically review the effectiveness of the OH&S management system.
Continuous Improvement: The standard promotes a culture of continual improvement by setting up mechanisms to identify opportunities for improvement, implementing corrective actions, and sharing best practices.
By implementing ISO 45001, organizations can benefit in several ways:
Enhanced Safety: ISO 45001 helps organisations establish robust systems to identify and mitigate occupational health and safety risks, ensuring a safer working environment and reducing incidents and injuries.
Legal Compliance: The standard assists organisations in understanding and meeting their legal obligations related to occupational health and safety.
Employee Engagement: ISO 45001 emphasizes the importance of involving employees in OH&S matters, fostering a culture of safety, and promoting their well-being and participation in continuous improvement initiatives.
Reputation and Trust: ISO 45001 certification demonstrates an organisation's commitment to employee well-being and safety, enhancing its reputation and building trust among stakeholders.
Cost Savings: Effective OH&S management can lead to reduced workplace incidents, resulting in lower costs associated with medical treatment, compensation claims, and productivity losses.
Regulatory Advantage: ISO 45001 certification can provide a competitive advantage when bidding for contracts or engaging with clients who prioritize occupational health and safety.
ISO 45001 was first published in 2018 and replaced the previous standard OHSAS 18001. It is important to consult the latest version of ISO 45001 and seek guidance from accredited certification bodies for up-to-date information and requirements.
