ISO to promote global occupational health & safety with ISO 45001

There is no doubt that with the propagation of consumer awareness, health safety and product quality management have become prime concerns for every customer. As it is rightly said that prevention is better than cure, the aware consumer of today’s era is in no mood to take any wrong buying decision that may eventually pose even a slightest of a risk to his health. In order to mitigate health safety concerns the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has set a yardstick for health and safety management, known as OHSAS 18001, apart from the basic ISO certification for quality management, i.e. ISO 9001 2015.

There is no doubt that there are certain inadequacies in all benchmarks for quality. Talking about the aspect of health safety, the concerns are on the rise due to prevailing trade malpractices such as adulteration, to which even the prevailing benchmarks are proving to be unsatisfactory. To address these issues, ISO is all set to instigate another yardstick for occupational health & safety (OH&S)-the ISO 45001. This would likely replace the existing OHSAS 18001.


The need for ISO 45001:

With the dawn of
globalization, the organizations have now begun to trade and integrate across borders. The organizations have begun to encounter unprecedented challenges to health and safety. The conventional types of ISO certification for assuring product quality, health and safety like ISO 9001 2015 and OHSAS 18001 have now proved to be quite generic and insufficient. The fact is none of them is satisfactorily promoting global conformity of product quality and safety.
To deal with this predicament, the process of implementing ISO 45001 was underway since 2013.

ISO 45001 will be made effective from March 2018 for all organizations. It will promote the all-encompassing aspect of OH&S management, to integrate the facets of health and safety, which will also include health and wellbeing of the workforce and hygiene at the workplace.


Key benefits of ISO 45001 certification:


The ISO 45001 will provide a straightjacket solution to diverse issues of health safety by:

  • Growing and executing a firm OH&S policy and objectives.
  • Conforming to methodical processes that are highly empirical and take into account all the possible hazards, and how to rule them out practically.
  • Comprehending those hazards and risks associated with erroneous activities and seeking to do away with them, besides putting stringent controls to minimize such risks.
  • Putting into effect operational controls to manage potential risks and the legal and other compliances for the same
  • Imparting awareness regarding OH&S risks
  • Evaluation of performance as per OH&S standards and seeking to improve it at every step, through desirable measures
  • Enticing all workers for a dynamic role in all OH&S matters.


Complete Procedure for getting ISO 45001:

The procedure to obtain this ISO certification will be quite simple involving 5 stages, as explained below-

Stage-1: Preliminary assessment

In this stage, the organization will be meticulously assessed to ensure that it duly meets the requirements for ISO 45001.

Stage-2: Secondary assessment

After the Preliminary assessment, the effectiveness of the safety management system, and that the same will be carefully implemented by the management.

Stage-3: Evaluation of the corrective measures, if suggested

At this stage, the system will be checked for implementation of any remedial measures that might have been suggested during stages 1 and 2, thereafter Approval for certification will be granted.

Stage-4: Final Review and Approval for certification

Finally, the files of the organization will be sent for review by an independent and unbiased panel of evaluators, who will then take the decision to grant the standardization.

Stage-5: Issuing of the certificate

After a thorough evaluation, the ISO 45001 will be issued to the organization.  


Some direct benefits of ISO 45001 to the organization:

Like ISO 9001 2015, 14001, 18001 and other important types of ISO certification, ISO 45001 also has certain direct advantages for an organization, some of which are as follows-

  • Better crisis management systems
  • Reduction in downtime and the prevention of disruption in operations
  • Less cost of insurance premiums
  • Reduction in employee turnover rate.
