5th February 2018
The final draft of ISO 45001 was issued towards the end of 2017 and it is widely expected to be published formally at the end of February 2018.
This new standard follows the annex SL format in that it has 10 sections to make it easier to integrate with other management standards:
There will be a period of three years from date of publication for BS OHSAS 18001 users to migrate to the new standard. Clearly a transition period was not applicable as this is a new standard.
It is hoped that there will be a greater uptake as it is now an ISO standard and that more companies will look to introduce an integrated management system with Quality (ISO9001) Environmental (ISO 14001) and Occupational Health & Safety (ISO 45001) together.
There are many advantages o this approach, as many of the elements of each standard can be combined to shorten operational staff time and also external certification body man-days.
