Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) management system certification is a procedure for confirmation of a degree of the Organization's Occupational Health & Safety management system conformity to requirements of a particular standard.
Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) certification is performed by independent competent auditors and experts of ACS, who have the necessary experience and training in the scope of conducting audits for compliance with the requirements of audited standards, as well as competence in the field of activity of an organization being audited.
In case of successful completion of the certification procedure, a client receives a Certificate of Conformity, an official document, confirming that Organization’s OHS management system meets the requirements provided by the standard.
ISO 45001, Occupational Health & Safety management system will be the world’s first OHS international standard. It will help thousands of organizations to provide a safe and healthy workplace for their workers and other people, prevent deaths, work-related injury, and ill health, and continually improve their performance. With the new standard organizations will be better equipped to improve their resilience by anticipating, adapting, and responding to risks so they can survive and prosper.
ISO 45001 is intended for use by any organization, regardless of its size or the nature of its work, and can be integrated into other health and safety programs such as worker wellness and wellbeing. ISO 45001 can assist an organization to fulfil its legal requirements.
ISO 45001 brings occupational health and safety management and continual improvement into the heart of an organization.
If you have any questions about migrating to ISO 45001 or implementation to the Health & Safety Standard for the first time please contact our team today.
The simple answer is all organizations. As long as your organization has people working on its behalf, or who may be affected by its activities, then using a systematic approach to managing health and safety will bring benefits to it. The standard can be used by small low-risk operations equally as well as by high risk and large complex organizations. While the standard requires that OHS risks are addressed and controlled, it also takes a risk-based approach to the OHS management system itself, to ensure a) that it is effective and b) being improved to meet an organization's ever changing “context”. This risk-based approach is consistent with the way organizations manage their other “business” risks and hence encourages the integration of the standard’s requirements into organizations' overall management processes.
ISO 45001 follows the high-level structure approach that is being applied to other ISO management system standards, such as ISO 9001 (quality) and ISO 14001 (environment). In developing the standard, consideration has been given to the content of other international standards (such as OHSAS 18001 or the International Labour Organization’s “ILO –OSH Guidelines”) and national standards, as well as to the ILO’s International Labour standards and conventions (ILSs).
Those adopting the standard, once it has been published, should find its requirements consistent with the other standards. This will allow for relatively easy migration from using an existing OHS management system standard to using ISO 45001, and will also allow for the alignment and integration with the requirements of other ISO management system standards into their organization's overall management processes.
