ISO 45001 Update
Added on: 26/02/2018
Over 7,600 people die each day from work-related accidents or diseases - that’s over 2.78 million every year*.
The burden of occupational injuries and diseases is significant, both for employers and the wider economy, resulting in losses from early retirements, staff absence and rising insurance premiums.
To combat the problem, ISO is developing a new standard, ISO 45001, Occupational health and safety management systems - Requirements, that will help organizations reduce this burden by providing a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions, all over the world.
The standard is currently being developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts, and will follow other generic management system approaches such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. It will take into account other International Standards in this area such as OHSAS 18001, the International Labour Organization's ILO-OSH Guidelines, various national standards and the ILO's international labour standards and conventions.
The new standard is expected to be released on 12th March 2018 and MY Compliance Management will be providing an gap analysis tool and library for all of it's users as soon as possible after this date. For more information on how this library can help you to implement the new standard please cal 0151 374 2077 or email email@example.com
