Whitepaper ISO 45001

How to implement the international standard and get certified!

From better legal compliance and fewer lost workdays to a more motivated workforce and increased productivity: Occupational health and safety has a lot of advantages. As of March 12th, 2018, there is a new international standard for occupational health and safety management systems: the ISO 45001. It replaces the previously applicable OHSAS 18001 standard. Companies with occupational health and safety management systems under OHSAS 18001 have had over three years since the publication of ISO 45001 to transition their systems to meet the requirements of the new standard. The original deadline was extended for an additional six months in light of the Corona pandemic and ended on September 30th, 2021.

The standard follows a High-Level Structure and is therefore relatively easy to implement into an integrated management system. This whitepaper explains the ISO 45001 requirements and outlines the specific actions that organizations must take in order to introduce this standard or bring their existing occupational health and safety management system into line with ISO 45001.
