ISO 45001: 2017 Occupational Health and Safety Management Standard

Here we are again, discussing this proposed Standard.  Possibly for the last time.
Once again the ISO members failed to agree unanimously that the Standard should be issued in its present form.

However, there were only three dissenters so it was decided to move to a final draft, probably to be issued in November 2017.

It should mean that (if accepted) the published Standard may see the light of day in the final days of 2017 but if not then early 2018.

Once the Standard has been published there will be a transition period, likely to be three years.
Holders of the existing BS OHSAS 18001 Standard will be able to plan ahead for the transition.     Naturally there will be a time lag before certification bodies qualify (with UKAS)  to carry out assessments. 

Our internal audit courses cover the proposed ISO 45001 standard and will update as the new Standard is published.
