Brief about ISO 45001
ISO 45001 is a standard published by International organization for standardization (ISO) in the year 2018 which is dedicatedly specifies requirements for occupational health and safety management system. Earlier there was no particular standard from ISO for occupational health and safety and occupational health and safety assessment series OHSAS 18001 was widely adopted. In the year 2018 ISO independently published this standard. ISO 45001 follows annex SL structure and can be implemented in any type of organization together with other management system standards like ISO 9001 quality management system and 14001 environment management system.
ISO 45001 has high level structure, standard languages and definitions, risk-based approach, strategic direction, leadership and commitment, monitoring of objectives, procurement and outsourced processes, business processes integration. The requirements also include worker participation and involvement in safety committee and their access to relevant audit reports and management decisions.
The new standard is comprehensive and demanding on auditors, consultants, implementers, management and trainers as issues are raised with reviewed terms and definitions. New definitions given to: consultation, contractor, corrective action, injury and ill health, incident, hazard, risk, worker, participation, outsource, etc.
However ISO 45001 retains the concept of Hazard identification and risk assessment which was present in OHSAS 18001. The introduction of ISO 45001 does not mean that OHSAS 18001 is obsoleted, OHSAS 18001 is still there in existence and the organizations has the freedom to whichever standard they want to adapt for serving as a guideline for maintenance of safety environment.
