What role OHSAS 18001:2007 plays in ISO 45001:2018!
(initial version OHSAS 18001:1999) is the predecessor to the recently released ISO standard ISO 45001:2018. The OHSAS standard was recognised internationally but it is not an ISO standard. Over time it has become increasingly apparent that too many workers are suffering from OHS related illnesses, injuries and deaths, placing an unacceptable burden on people, their families and with moral and welfare costs to society overall. iso service in kuwait This was recognised and hence the need to have a systematic structure for the management of the activities. ISO 45001:2018 is an ISO standard and has been designed to have greater compatibility with existing ISO standard management system revisions including ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. It uses the same management system structure and reflects the requirements identified by the International Labour Organization guidance for OHS systems. It has been developed over a number of years by International bodies and industry experts. Owing to this compatibility ISO 45001:2018 should build on all the success of OHSAS 18001 and allow the benefits to be enhanced and potentially integrated in other generic management system standards. In 2021 OHSAS 18001 will be withdrawn leaving ISO 45001 the primary international OHS management system standard.
Benefits of ISO 45001:2018 are:
The standard promotes worker participation when identifying hazards, elimination or reducing risk by implementation of controls integrated with other business process.
Implementation is a demonstration and commitment from senior leadership to internal and external stakeholders (interested parties) of the intent to protect workers from accidents including short- and long-term ill health effects.
The standard provides a systematic approach for senior leadership to assess OH&S risk and opportunities, monitor and review safety performance and set objectives for continual improvement within the ‘context’ of organizational activities.
In addition to internal process controls, the standard has provided requirements to assess procurement of products and services which may have influences on OH&S.
Implementation is also recognition for having achieved an international standard benchmark which may have positive influence on existing and potential customers in fulfilling their own social responsibility commitments.
