Your business is growing day by day, in terms of reputation if nothing else. What’s also growing in our culture is the issue of work-related injuries and disease as a result of poor practice around health and safety.

Create safer, healthier, happier workplaces, and show the world you’re renowned for it.

A fundamental investment for future success of any organisation regardless of size and industry


Compliance with ISO 45001 (or any health and safety management system) will clearly demonstrate that you as an organisation have robust arrangements in place and are committed to setting higher standards for the safety and wellbeing of your people.


Providing you with a commercial advantage, particularly in tendering opportunities with customers and clients.


It will set you apart, place you in high regard and many companies are requiring it as a condition of doing business.


ISO 45001:2018, Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems, provides a new framework for any organisation to determine the measures they need to put in place in order to minimise the risk of harm from work activities.


With the revisions of the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management and ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Standards the new ISO 45001 has been aligned. It is widely acknowledged as being successful within the workplace protecting workers all around the world.

ISO 45001 replaces OHSAS 18001, to which many organisations are certified, they realised the benefits. Organisations now need to migrate, we support you in successful migration to achieve the new requirements for certification.

The Framework


In practical terms, the standard uses a simple model that reflects the widely recognised Plan-Do-Check-Act approach for organisations to identify what steps need to be taken to minimise the risk of harm.


It introduces the concept of risk and opportunity, which may serve to identify areas of improvement and integration of OH&S management system into the organisations’ business processes.


Central to this approach is that senior management take ownership and demonstrate commitment to the implementation of proactive OHS systems.


It also recognises the value of worker involvement and consultation in minimising risk and developing better OHS practices.  This increases awareness of hazards and risk, and associated operational controls through information, communication and training.


The standards’ framework audit process is also designed to be flexible enough to apply to all employers, irrespective of size, industry or activity so that its’ principles deliver relevance and impact.
