What is ISO 45001:2018
Occupational Health and Safety Management?

How does a business effectively demonstrate its commitment to Occupational Health and Safety Management?

ISO 45001:2018 is applicable to any organisation that wishes to establish, implement and maintain an OHS management system to improve occupational health and safety, eliminate hazards and minimise OHS risks (including system deficiencies), take advantage of OHS opportunities, and address OHS management system nonconformities associated with its activities.
