ISO 45001 is the new international standard for occupational health and safety management replacing the OHSAS 18001 standard. The standard reduces workplace risks to improve employee safety.

Gaining the ISO 45001 certification allows you to demonstrate that your business operates a best-practice Occupational Health and Safety Management System – reducing the likelihood of accidents and breaches of legislation, as well as improving your organisation’s overall performance.

What is ISO 45001?


ISO 45001 is an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system standard. It enables companies to improve their performance and prevent injury. ISO 45001 can help any business of any size in any industry. It’s designed to easily integrate with other management processes, such as ISO 9001 and 14001. You can download our free guide to learn more:


Benefits of ISO 45001

A healthier and safer workforce

ISO 45001 aims to reduce work related incidents, and focuses on creating a health and safety culture, whereby employees are encouraged to take an active role in their own OH&S. This – underpinned by strong leadership with demonstrable commitment to OH&S – helps to create a culture of safety, resulting in reduced staff turnover, increased morale and improved staff retention rates – as well as making their work environment both safer and healthier.

Maximise productivity

ISO 45001 helps your organisation understand risk profiles through a systematic process to keep your workforce healthy and safe, thereby reducing absenteeism and staff turnover, leading to increased productivity.

Compliance and a commitment to excellence

ISO 45001 provides a clear framework to manage your regulatory and legal obligations. Implementing a robust OH&S management system can help to deliver stakeholder confidence, thereby improving your brand reputation and providing a competitive advantage when bidding for contracts.

Simple integration

ISO 45001 easily integrates with all new and revised ISO managements system standards, such as ISO 9001  andISO 14001 , as it shares the same high-level text and common structure.
