ISO 45001:2018 standard: publication just ahead
7 February 2018, Kolkata
ISO 45001, the new occupational health & safety (OHS) standard from the ISO stable has been approved for publication following an overwhelming support from the ISO member National standards bodies.
ISO 45001 standard is presently being developed by a committee of occupational health & safety experts. It will be in alignment with other generic management system approaches such as ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 9001:2015 as well as the same High-Level Structure (HLS). As expected by the industry, it will take into account other International standards in this area such as OHSAS 18001, the International Labour Organisation’s ILO-OSH Guidelines, various National standards and the ILO’s International labour standards and conventions. The ISO project committee ISO/PC 283, occupational health & safety management systems is currently developing the ISO 45001 standard.
According to the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), the standard is expected to be published in March 2018.
The migration requirements from the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) is in place to help the certified organisations, certification bodies, accreditation bodies & other interested parties to migrate to ISO 45001. There will be a three-year window (migration period) from the date of publication of ISO 45001:2018.
