ISO 45001:2018 – OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY MANAGEMENT
Many organisations are now concerned about demonstrating their commitment to Health and Safety so implementing a management system based on the requirements of ISO 45001:2018 will help achieve this.
WHY IMPLEMENT ISO 45001:2018?
Introducing ISO 45001:2018 within your organisation demonstrates a commitment to implement, maintain and improve the way in which you manage your Health and Safety system. This is not only important for employees, but also customers, stakeholders and the company’s image.
Organisations registered to ISO 45001:2018 can be more confident about meeting the requirements of Health & Safety legislation. The setting of targets through the Health and Safety policy, together with the on-going measurement against it, also ensures a process of continual improvement.
There are commercial benefits too. Down time due to incidents and ill health can be reduced. More business may be won where certification is a condition of supply.
HOW CAN WE HELP IMPLEMENT ISO 45001:2018?
Firstly we will evaluate the Health and Safety needs of your staff and visitors. Then identify and introduce the appropriate documentation which sets the boundaries of your Health and Safety system and formalise your procedures for meeting the requirements of ISO 45001:2018 including the writing of Method Statements, Risk Assessment and Safe Systems of Work. Once we ensure these procedures are fully implemented we will begin to audit and review them.
Once developed, internal audits are needed to ensure the system continues to be effective. Always bear in mind the need to conform to legislative requirements.
