Status: Up to date

Health & safety management system

The purpose of the Occupational Health and Safety Management System is to help businesses to protect and enhance their most important asset; their people, to drive business excellence. This new standard can help with increased organisational resilience through proactive risk prevention, innovation and continual improvement. Strengthening of legal and regulatory compliance whilst reducing business losses. It demonstrates brand responsibility by committing to safe, healthy and sustainable work. One global occupational health and safety system for all businesses, of all sizes.

The adoption of an Occupational Health and Safety Management System to the ISO 45001:2018 series is a strategic decision for the organisation to help improve its overall performance or compliance requirements and works as a baseline for sustainable development initiatives. The standard continues to be a guideline and therefore is flexible to the extent that it can be integrated into any organisation.

Implementing a Health and Safety Management System (ISO 45001:2018) will help you take into account the obligation as an employer, the overwhelming legal framework around Occupational Health and Safety in the work place and it ensures your commitment with these requirements together with achieving a stronger overall H&S company culture. Ensure you have measures in place to protect your workforce, stakeholders, supplier and clients (Health and Safety is everyone’s responsibility).
