ISO 45001:2018

ISO 45001 is the most widely recognised standard for managing occupational health and safety. ISO 45001 concentrates on prevention of ill-health as well as accidents, which leads to a healthier and happier workforce, less time lost to sickness and lower staff turnover.


ISO 45001 for the management of occupational health and safety

ISO 45001 is a standard that provides a framework for a business to manage the effect that it has on the health & well-being of its employees and other people that may come into contact with it.  ISO 45001 drives the business to understand the risks present in its activities and the legislation and codes of practice that it needs to adhere to.  The business then goes on to develop measures to reduce risks to an acceptable level.  ISO 45001 can be used to develop an integrated system for business management or sustainability and integrates easily with ISO 9001 & ISO 14001.

The focus of a business using ISO 45001 is risk management & prevention of harm to people.  Doing this in the right way can help a business to:-

  • Reduce operating costs
  • Win and retain customers
  • Improve relationships with regulators and neighbours
  • Prevent breaches of legislation
  • Improve staff morale
  • Reduce sickness absence
