What is ISO 45001?
On March 12th, 2018 ISO 45001: 2018 Occupational Health & Safety Management System was released. ISO 45001 will now replace the existing OHSAS 18001:2007 standard. The new standard is the world’s first occupational health and safety standard that is recognised globally. The standard is designed to provide a safe and healthy workplace for your employees. ISO 45001 has been designed for both organisations large and small and can be tailored to meet the needs of the organisation’s objectives. The new standard has also been updated to allow smoother integration with other ISO standards such as ISO 9001 (Quality Management System) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System). Learn more about the differences between ISO 45001 and OHSAS 18001 from ISO.

If you’re currently certified to OHSAS 18001 then you will need to migrate to ISO 45001. All migration audits to ISO 45001 must be completed by 12th December 2020.
