Health and Safety: Why ISO 45001?

ISO 45001 is the International Standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems requiring organizations to identify hazards, risks and opportunities then take appropriate action to address those issues before they arise. 

The key elements of this standard include leadership commitment, worker participation, hazard identification and risk assessment, legal and regulatory compliance, emergency planning, incident investigation and continual improvement. 

Across the world, an estimated 2.3 million workers die annually from occupational accidents and work-related diseases which equals around 6,300 deaths daily. ISO 450001 is designed to help organizations of all sizes to put in place processes for a safe working environment which will reduce workplace injuries and illnesses. One of the most important aspects of ISO 450001 is proactive risk management.
