ISO 45001 transition – Safety Management System Requirements

An organisation is responsible for Ensuring that it minimizes the chance of injury to the people who might be affected by its actions, and especially if they are engaged by the organisation to do those tasks as part of the job. There were, according to a quote From the International Labor Organisation (ILO), 2.34 million deaths in 2013 as a result of work activities. The best bulk is related to health issues, instead of injuries. IOSH, the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, estimates there are 660,000 deaths annually as a consequence arising from work activities.

ISO is developing an occupational Health and safety (OH&S) management system standard (ISO 45001) that is meant to allow organizations to handle their OH&S risks and enhance their OH&S performance. The execution of an OH&S management system will be a decision for an organisation which could be used to encourage its sustainability efforts, ensuring individuals are healthier and safer and increase profitability. The actions of an organisation can pose a threat of harm or ill-health, and may result in a severe impairment of health, or even fatality, to those working on its own behalf; consequently it is essential for the organisation to remove or minimize its OH&S dangers by taking proper preventive measures.
