ISO/IEC 45001:2018 OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS 

 

The purpose of an OH&S management system is to provide a framework for managing OH&S risks. The intended outcomes of the OH&S management system are to prevent work-related injury and ill health to workers and to provide safe and healthy workplaces; consequently, it is critically important for the organization to eliminate hazards and minimize OH&S risks by taking effective preventive and protective measures.

An OH&S management system can be more effective and efficient when taking early action to address opportunities for improvement of OH&S performance.
