What is ISO 45001?

ISO 45001 is an international standard for occupational health and safety management. It is designed to help organizations ensure a safe and healthy working environment for their employees by identifying and managing potential hazards. ISO 45001 includes requirements for a systematic process of risk assessment, risk management, and continuous improvement of occupational health and safety performance. By implementing ISO 45001 certification, organizations can reduce workplace accidents and improve the working environment for their employees while meeting international requirements and standards for occupational health and safety management

Why pursue an Occupational Health and Safety Certification?

It is becoming increasingly important for every type of organization to realize a good working environment. This is achieved by examining safety risks and the working environment. Improvements to operations, products, and services are implemented through the examination. It is important to also demonstrate to owners, employees, customers, and other stakeholders that the working environment is good and continually improving. The attention from stakeholders in these matters has increased.

Improving the working environment contributes to sustainable development and new challenges. Another advantage is that your organization’s status is elevated. The certification process becomes evidence that your organization is the “responsible employer.”

There are additional benefits to certification. Firstly, certification guarantees that your organization’s management addresses occupational health and safety issues. Secondly, certification provides clear and well-founded goals for improving the working environment. An overall picture of risk analyses, safety inspections, and other investigations forms the basis for shaping goals for your organization’s occupational health and safety
