What is ISO 45001:2018?
ISO 45001:2018 sets out requirements for an occupational health and safety management system that can be used by organizations to prevent injury in the workplace as well as provide a safe working environment. It also offers guidance on how these systems should function, so they achieve their goals effectively without causing additional problems or risks with regards to OH&S performance measures, like reduced accidents due to lower risk factors, such as improved awareness among employees which leads them to learn safer practices overall, because there have been fewer incidents resulting from proper training methods being utilized while implementing new ideas.
ISO 45001 is about your commitment to the people's health and safety and planning how best we can deliver on those goals through OH&S assurance, improvement initiatives etc. The latest version of this international standard was published in 2018 and replaced OHSAS 18001 and has focused more on the role of leadership as well as what it takes for leaders not only to recognize their own strengths but also to take action accordingly when faced with challenges or opportunities.
It's important because these days many people demand it as part of any contract before they agree on signing.
