It replaces Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS) 18001, a British standard that had previously been used internationally. ISO 45001 helps a1-cbiss to view our employee’s health and safety as a priority within our organisation. ISO 45001 ensures that a rigorous health and safety policy is in place which protects our people against possible occupational risks and reduces the likelihood of accidents in the workplace. By planning ahead it enables us to identify health and safety risks and conform to health and safety legislation.
