ISO 45001 due for publication in March

ISO 45001, Occupational health and safety management systems is a new standard which will help organisations in providing a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions.

ISO 45001 will replace OHSAS 18001, which will be withdrawn after its publication. Organisations that are certified to OHSAS 18001 will have three years to migrate to the new standard, according to the UK standards body BSI Group.

The standard has been developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts, and will follow other generic management system approaches such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001.
