ISO45001

ISO 45001 is the future replacement to OHSAS 18001 and will become the international standard for health and safety management systems.
The standard will follow the new structure of Annex SL and be aligned with the 2015 versions of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. This will enable simpler and stronger integration of these management systems.

If your organisation already has certification to OHSAS 18001 you will need to eventually make the transition to ISO 45001 to maintain the validity of certification.
ISO 45001 is expected to be published in October 2016, so there is plenty of time to plan the transition – current OHSAS 18001 holders will have up to three years from the publication of the new standard to make the transition to the new standard.

Organisations who do not currently hold OHSAS 18001 but wish to do so should continue with their plans as accreditation to the OHSAS 18001 standard holds many potential benefits including:

Reductions in overall accident and ill-health statistics within the Company;
Reduced insurance premiums due to lower levels of residual risk;
Enhanced employee engagement and motivation;
Improved commercial competitiveness; and
Improved synergy with overall good management practice.
