SGS will host a series of complimentary webinars focusing on the changes of the new Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OHSMS) standard and the process to migration.
ISO 45001 is the world’s first International Standard for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S). It promotes a safe and healthy working environment by providing a framework that allows organizations to identify and reduce their OH&S risks, reduce the potential for workplace accidents and illnesses, and improve legislative compliance. The intent of ISO 45001 is to provide an organization with a high-level understanding of the important issues that can affect it either positively or negatively and how it manages its occupational health and safety responsibilities towards its workers. With the introduction of the new standard, SGS has launched a campaign aimed at educating organizations on the key changes and best practices of this migration. This webinar series will begin in June and end in July, and will be presented by industry experts. Scheduled dates are:
ISO 45001 will be the new international standard for an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS). OHSMS is a fundamental part of an organization’s risk management strategy. Its implementation enables an organization to protect its workforce and others under its control, comply with legal requirements and facilitate continual improvement. While it is similar to OHSAS 18001, the new ISO 45001 standard adopts the Annex SL top-level framework of all new and revised ISO management system standards.
The standard is a good tool in health and safety management as it attracts attention from both internal and external stakeholders to consider the overall risk control strategies. It is essential in strategizing and adopting an occupational and health management system relating to its importance to the overall performance of the organization. ISO 45001 stipulates new requirements that need to be implemented by organization. It puts into consideration the organizational context which combines internal and external factors and conditions that can affect the approach of the business in implementing the health and safety requirements.
