New ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety standard due out October 2016

ISO 45001 will provide a framework for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. It will help organisations put in place the policies, procedures and controls needed to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create safer working conditions.

ISO 45001 is an international standard that will replace the British OHSAS 18001 standard. ISO 45001 adopts the same high-level structure as other ISO Management System standards. This allows for easier integration of all Occupational Health & Safety, Quality and Environmental Management Systems into an organisation's business operations.

The Draft International Standard (DIS) has been published and is currently under review. Expected publication date: October 2016.

If you currently operate an OHSAS 18001 system, some of the differences that appear in the draft document of ISO 45001 include:

Following publication of ISO 45001, you will have a 2-3 year transition period to migrate to this new standard.
