ISO 45001 is the new international standard for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) management, this will replace the existing OHSAS 18001 standard.
Publication of the new ISO 45001 standard is likely to be in March 2018. OHSAS 18001 will be withdrawn on the publication of ISO 45001 and organisations currently certified to OHSAS 18001 will have a three year period to migrate to ISO 45001.
Currently with OHSAS 18001, Health and Safety responsibilities sit with the Health and Safety Manager. With ISO 45001 the H&S responsibilities will now need to be integrated into everyday business operations with wider accountability and not the sole responsibility of the Health & Safety Manager.
