Preparing for the upcoming ISO 45001 standard

The new ISO standard, ISO 45001, is the international standard for occupational safety and health management systems, designed to replace OHSAS 18001. It is expected to be launched by April.

Health and safety practitioners can get a head start with an ISO 45001 awareness seminar, which will be held at Aviator Hotel, OR Tambo Airport, Johannesburg, on January 26.

The one-day course will provide advance information on the requirements of ISO 45001 and is intended to enable participants, working with an existing safety management system based on OHSAS 18001:2007, plan the migration of their systems to the new international standard. The course will also assist those looking to attain or retain certification.

The final version of ISO 45001 will be aligned with other management systems standards, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. The course is intended to enable participants working with an existing safety management system based on OHSAS 18001:2007 to:
• Understand the similarities and differences between the OHSAS 18001:2007 and ISO/DIS 45001:2018 standards;
• understand what they need to do to transition an existing occupational health and safety management system to ISO 45001:2018;
• understand the proposed implementation time frame for ISO 45001:2018 and the impact on certified organisations.
