Global standards organisation ISO along with support from the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) has approved a measure which is aiming to improve workplace safety and reduce risk across the Globe. According to ASSE, with 2.8million workplace fatalities globally per year, this voluntary consensus standard provides a framework for businesses that can increase employee safety, reduce workplace risks and improve business outcomes worldwide
Vic Toy, U.S. technical advisory group (TAG) chair commented in a statement that; “ISO 45001 is one of the most significant developments in workplace safety over the past 50 years, presenting an opportunity to move the needle on reducing occupational safety and health risks,” Toy goes on to say “The goal was to create a widely accepted standard that can produce a highly effective safety and health management system for an increasingly interconnected world, regardless of an organization’s size, location, supply chains or nature of work. It becomes a minimum standard of practice, and a good one at that.”
For a new international standard to pass through ISO two thirds of its members need to vote in favour. According to ISO, 93 percent of its members voted in favour of 45001!
It is expected that the final publication will be released on March 18, 2018. This version is planned to replace OHSAS 18001:2007 as the globally recognized occupational health and safety management system certification standard. To enable organizations to align with its requirements, ISO 45001:2018 will have a migration period of three years.
ISO 45001:2018 is designed to be an integral part of an organisation’s efforts in the management of occupational health and safety in the workplace. ISO 45001 encourages more internal and external stakeholder focus as part of the adoption of a risk-based approach to health and safety management. It emphasizes the importance of adopting an occupational health and safety management system as a strategic decision for an organization.
