What is ISO 45001?
How to create an ISO 45001 system?
Your system has to meet the minimum requirements before you can be certified. Here, we outline the steps to creating your quality management system for certification.
What is the latest version of ISO 45001?
ISO 45001 is the new internationally recognized Occupational Health & Safety standard. ISO 45001 is newly released and will replace AS/NZS 4801 and OHSAS 18001, as these standards will be withdrawn over the next three years.
What does it mean to be ISO 45001 certified?
When you are certified to ISO 45001, you are able to get external certification of your system. This helps show interested parties, stakeholders and customers that you have met the requirements set out in ISO 45001:2018, and that you have systems in place to mitigate risks and build confidence. ISO 45001 shows you are actively working to reduce risks that exist in the workplace, and therefore reduce workplace related injury and illness. This can provide significant cost savings as you can reduce employee sick leave, compensation and insurance.

How to get certified to ISO 45001?
1. Gap Analysis (optional): The process begins with an optional gap analysis to evaluate your OH&S system against each clause of ISO 45001.
Why is ISO 45001 required?
ISO 45001 is required to show customers, suppliers and stakeholders that you have idenitified, mitigated and controlled safety risks, and you are committed to providing a safe workplace. To become certified to ISO 45001, companies need to undergo evaluation against the standard, and need to have ongoing surveillance audits to ensure ongoing compliance.
