ISO 45001 occupational health and safety
Written by Phoenix Health & Safety

Expected to be published by February 2018, ISO 45001 will be the first International Standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system. It will enable organisations to proactively improve their OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill-health.
ISO 45001 is intended to replace the widely-implemented BS OHSAS 1800, which is likely to be withdrawn. It is anticipated that organisations currently certified to BS OHSAS 18001 will need to migrate to ISO 45001 within three years of the new standard’s publication.
