IRCA ISO 45001 OSH Standard Course in Islamabad, ISO 45001 Lead Auditor Course
What is ISO 45001?
ISO 45001 is an International Standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, with guidance for its use, to enable an organisation to proactively improve its OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill-health. ISO 45001 is intended to be applicable to any organisation regardless of its size, type and nature. ISO 45001 enables an organisation, through its OH&S management system, to integrate other aspects of health and safety, such as worker wellness/wellbeing; however, it should be noted that an organisation can be required by applicable legal requirements to also address such issues.
What will be the benefits of using ISO 45001?
An ISO 45001 based OH&S management system will enable an organisation to improve its OH&S performance by:
- Developing and implementing an OH&S policy and OH&S objectives
- Establishing systematic processes which consider its “context” and which take into account its risks and opportunities, and its legal and other requirements
- Determining the hazards and OH&S risks associated with its activities; seeking to eliminate them, or putting in controls to minimize their potential effects
- Establishing operational controls to manage its OH&S risks and its legal and other requirements
increasing awareness of its OH&S risks
- Evaluating its OH&S performance and seeking to improve it, through taking appropriate actions
- Ensuring workers take an active role in OH&S matters
In combination, these measures will ensure that an organisation’s reputation as a safe place to work will be promoted, and can have more direct benefits, such as:
- Improving its ability to respond to regulatory compliance issues
Reducing the overall costs of incidents
Reducing downtime and the costs of disruption to operations
Reducing the cost of insurance premiums
Reducing absenteeism and employee turnover rates
Recognition for having achieved an international benchmark (which may in turn influence customers who are concerned about their social responsibilities)
Understand OHSMS and ISO 45001.
The first step in implementing ISO 45001, or any standard for that matter, is understanding its purpose and how it can benefit an organization.
“Start by building your knowledge on what a management system is and how you can leverage it to benefit workers as well as the organization to improve health and safety performance and risk management,” says Vic Toy, CSP, CIH and chair of the U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) on ISO 45001.
Safety professionals should also take this opportunity to familiarize themselves with ISO 45001 and its requirements. The standard provides 11 success factors for the implementation of an OHSMS, which can provide guidance on how it can be carried out.
With deeper knowledge of OHSMS and ISO 45001, safety professionals can develop a strong business case for why their organizations should implement the standard. By understanding ISO 45001 requirements, safety professionals can gain insight into the impact the standard can have on the company’s bottom line, and communicate that to executives.
“OSH professionals need to understand the business impact of the integration of this standard on commercial excellence,” says Kathy Seabrook, CSP, CFIOSH, EurOSHM and vice chair of the U.S. TAG on ISO 45001. “It is a competitive advantage, and organizations who understand how to leverage it will outperform their competitors
