ISO 45001 Certification Consulting Services

JAS-ANZ has announced all OHSAS 18001 certified businesses will need to transfer to ISO 45001 by September 2021. BusinessBasics can help you with this transition – call us today!

Every year thousands of people become sick, injured or sadly lose their lives due to preventable workplace incidents and illnesses.

To combat this, OHSAS 18001, the precursor to ISO 45001, was developed to minimise workplace risks, create safer workplaces and improve employee safety conditions across all industries.


iso 45001 migration underway

OHSAS 18001 focused on risks and related to the workers in an organisation. However, in March 2018, the ISO committee recognised a need to further improve health and safety management in the workplace.

A new and improved version of the OHSAS 18001 certification was released called ISO 45001:2018. In this new standard, organisations must look at both risks and opportunities, as well as the health and safety of workers from a holistic perspective, including employee wellness and wellbeing.

Organisations still certified to OHSAS 18001 will need to migrate to ISO 45001 before September 2021. At BusinessBasics, we’re committed to helping businesses of all shapes and sizes to become ISO 45001:2018 certified, whether it’s a first-time certification or a smooth migration from OHSAS to ISO 45001.

What is ISO 45001 certification?

With input from experts from over 70 countries, ISO 45001 was developed under the ISO system to provide an international framework for occupational health and safety management. Unlike its predecessor, OHSAS 18001, ISO 45001 factors in the interaction between a company and its business environment.

ISO 45001 can apply to businesses of any size, scope or industry. It’s designed to combine seamlessly with your existing management processes and works off a risk-based approach, undergoing constant updates to keep pace with your business as it changes and grows.

ISO 45001 certifications demonstrate a business’s ability to identify and manage risks associated with its industry and protect the physical and mental health of its employees.
