ISO 45001 2018


The purpose of an OH&S management system is to provide a framework for managing OH&S risks and opportunities. The aim and intended outcomes of the OH&S management system are to prevent work- related injury and ill health to workers and to provide safe and healthy workplaces; consequently, it is critically important for the organization to eliminate hazards and minimize OH&S risks by taking effective preventive and protective measures.


ISO 45002-0:2018


This British Standard provides a framework to help organizations successfully implement an OH&S management system based on ISO 45001, in a way that is proportionate to the organization's specific health and safety risks. For example, organizations with less complex and/or less hazardous operations often have a good idea of their main workplace risks whether there is an existing management system in place or not. ISO 45001 and this guidance provide a framework for managing OH&S risks in a more structured way and for identifying any gaps that need to be addressed.


ISO 45002-1:2018


This British Standard provides guidance to organizations on how to:


a) reduced the risk of work-related physical and mental ill-health;

b) manage OH and improve OH performance; and

c) promote a positive OH culture.


ISO 45002-3:2018


This British Standard describes the intent of individual clauses of BS ISO 45001 and provides guidance to help organizations implement an accident/incident investigation process based on BS ISO 45001.
