ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Standard

Back in June 2015 we advised readers that the replacement for OHSAS 18001 had been refused at the final draft stage; there were some 3000 comments raised and this meant that it was not possible for the Standard to proceed in that format.  It was back to the drawing board.

We now understand that a rewrite of the Standard has taken plane and we are awaiting release of the final draft again.  If it is accepted by all signatories then it will be published towards the end of 2017.  Some optimists think it may be as early as September 2017.

The Standard will follow the Annex SL format with ten sections:

  1. Scope
  2. Normative references
  3.  Terms and definitions
  4. Context of the Organisation
  5. Leadership
  6. Planning
  7. Support
  8. Operation
  9. Performance Evaluation
  10. Improvement
Naturally there will be sub-sections to suit the new  Standard.

We will of course keep you posted.
