Occupational Health And Safety Management System

Optimal Performance through Safety Measures

Businesses are increasingly required to prove sound commitment to Occupational Health & Safety practices. Hazards at the workplace contribute to losses from early retirements, staff absence and rising insurance premiums. Occupational Health and Safety is a concern for both employers and the wider economy.  In order to ensure safety at work, ISO developed a standard to help improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions.

What is ISO 45001?

ISO 45001 is an international standard that specifies requirements for an Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) management system. It provides guidelines for the implementation of occupational health and safety measures to enable an organization to proactively improve its OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill-health at the workplace. ISO 45001 is applicable to any organization regardless of its size, type and nature.

  • Identify workplace hazards and implement effective preventive controls
