ISO 45001:2018
Occupational Health and Safety Management System

(with usage guide)
What is ISO 45001?
ISO 45001 for occupational health and safety management systems requires organizations to adopt a risk-based approach to workplace safety management. This first ISO safety standard was published in 2018 and is based on the same higher-level structure as all ISO management system standards. ISO 45001 is not a prescriptive document, rather it is intended to enable organizations to provide safe and healthy workplaces, prevent occupational injuries and deterioration of health, and continuously improve OHS performance.
