ISO 45001 Draft International Standard made available

The long-awaited Draft International Standard (DIS) of ISO 45001 is now available. The standard, which is due to be completed and published in October, will replace BS OHSAS 18001 and have a greater emphasis on leadership, worker involvement, context and documented information.

It will be the first internationally-agreed health and safety management systems standard to apply to organisations across the world.

Standards like ISO 45001 are developed to help organisations manage their processes and risks in a systematic and consistent way.

The LinkedIn EHS ISO 45001 group, managed by Chris J Ward, Committee Member at British Standards Institution is using these webpages to develop a toolkit of resources to help aspiring corporations to prepare for the introduction of ISO 45001. If you are a LinkedIn user, we’d recommend you joining the group to keep up to date with the latest information.
