What are the key things to know about ISO 45001?
The very fact ISO 45001:2018 has been developed by ISO indicates this standard will have a holistic approach to developing health and safety systems.
The standard provides a clear framework for businesses to develop a framework for workplace health & safety, which will be measurable and include checks to ensure the business is committed to continually improving their system. The focus, as with other management systems, is on leadership and shared responsibility for the development and the implementation of the standard.
This system aligns with the other High-Level Structure standards which have been developed by ISO. This means there are ten clauses in the standard, which are:
- Normative references
- Terms and definitions
- Context of the organisation
- Performance Evaluation
There are of course subclauses and sub-subclauses – 43 in total. For more information on these clauses, and what they mean, contact our team today.
