ISO 45001:2018 Certification

ISO 45001:2018- Health & Safety Management System


Launched in March 2018, ISO 45001 is the new internationally recognised standard for health and safety management systems. It demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to controlling its health and safety risks and eliminating work-related accidents.

The standard provides a systematic approach to engaging employees and contractors in preventing injuries and ill health and ensuring you are compliant with legal and contractual requirements.

  1. Top management leadership, commitment, responsibilities and accountability
  2. Top management involvement in developing, leading and promoting a culture in the organisation that supports the health and safety management system
  3. Communication

  5. Allocation of resources to implement and maintain the health and safety management system
  6. Alignment of health and safety policies with the overall strategic objectives and direction of the Organisation

  8. Continual performance evaluation and monitoring of the management system to improve health and safety performance
  9. Integration of the health and safety management system into the organisation’s business processes
