ISO 45001 specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, and gives guidance for its use, to enable organizations to provide safe and healthy workplaces by preventing work-related injury and ill health, as well as by proactively improving its OH&S performance. ISO 45001 is applicable to any organization that wishes to establish, implement and maintain an OH&S management system to improve occupational health and safety, eliminate hazards and minimize OH&S risks (including system deficiencies), take advantage of OH&S opportunities, and address OH&S management system nonconformities associated with its activities.
Improve employee safety
The most obvious benefit of ISO 45001 is the potential to reduce workplace illnesses and injuries.
Boost stakeholder confidence
Beyond the obvious benefits, complying with the ISO 45001 standard is a way to show customers, investors, and regulators that you’re serious about keeping people safe. When stakeholders are confident in your abilities to maintain a safe work environment, they’re more likely to want to do business with you.
Lower insurance costs
In the same way that being a safe driver can keep your auto insurance rates low, tending to workplace safety can help keep the costs of commercial insurance down. By decreasing the risk of injury, you also decrease the chances that a worker will need to file a claim.
ISO 45001 offers a framework for organizations to identify potential safety hazards before they contribute to an accident. By addressing risks within your operations, your organization will enjoy fewer unwelcome surprises.
Stand out as an industry leader
The ISO 45001 standard was published in 2018, so it is still relatively new. Being among the first companies to achieve compliance with the new standard is a way for organizations to set themselves apart.
Engage employees in safety
Employee involvement is a key ingredient in any successful safety program. The ISO 45001 standard offers a structured way to promote worker consultation and participation.
Demonstrate your commitment to safety
The ISO 45001 standard is a widely recognized international symbol of safety excellence. By using the ISO 45001 standard, organizations can show that they are following health and safety best practices. Some organizations may even decide to pursue the extra recognition that comes with certification.
