The Draft International Standard (DIS) of ISO 45001, the world’s first occupational health and international safety standard, has been published. The new standard is envisioned to replace OHSAS 18001.
What happens next?
The final ISO standard OHSAS 18001 is scheduled to be published later this year.
The draft has been shared with all ISO national members and they will review and provide feedback.
The next ISO committee meeting will be held in early summer 2016 where all comments will be reviewed.

Reaping the rewards of proactive safety
OHSAS 18001 sets out the minimum requirements for occupational health and safety management best practice. Standardizing health and safety can achieve the maximum return for your operations, your employees, the general public, the community and your customers.
Occupational health and safety management helps reduce workplace accidents and illness, cutting out related costs and downtime, as well as prioritizing the welfare of company personnel and other stake holders.
It paves the way for the best possible working conditions for any organization and provides guidelines on how to identify hazards and put in place the correct controls to manage them. Leading to better, safer working conditions and ultimately to superior performance.
OHSAS 18001 not only motivates staff, it also engages customers and suppliers looking for businesses that take occupational health and safety management seriously.
ISO/DIS 45001 brings occupational health and safety management and continual improvement into the heart of an organization. This new standard is an opportunity for organizations to align their strategic direction with their OH&S management system. In addition, there is an increased focus on improving occupational health and safety performance.
