ISO 45001 is now published

After many years of discussions concerning a standard on occupational health and safety management systems, an International Standard ISO 45001 has now been published by ISO

The new standard has been designed to integrate with other ISO management systems standards, including the new revisions of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

It will replace BS OHSAS 18001, the previous standard for workplace health and safety. Companies who are currently certified to BS OHSAS 18001 will have three years to transition to ISO 45001:2018, the deadline for the transition period is set as the 12th March 2021.

You can find further information on the web pages of ISO and its committee ISO/PC283.
