ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety Standard

It is now planned to be issued as a final draft this month and the actual publication and release in March 2018.  It will be in the Annex SL format to make integration with other management standards easier. (Ten identically named clauses).

We at Quality Matters will relax once it is published.   We were all fired up in 2015 when it was first due but it was found to be totally unacceptable to a large number of the ISO participants. 

A total rewrite was commissioned and the second draft failed again to get a unanimous vote.  There were three votes against the new draft, but it was decided to move onward to a final draft.

There will be a transition period of three years to move from BS OHSAS 18001.  Naturally, we will be on hand to help clients with the transition.
