ISO 45001 - Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems

ISO 45001 is an occupational health and safety management systems standard that aims to prevent injury and harm to health. The standard emphasizes risk identification, hazard assessment, risk evaluation, and operational controls. It is designed to be easily integrated with other ISO standards and an organization's management and business processes. Implementing this standard can help organizations manage risk, promote safe work practices, comply with regulations, evaluate occupational health and safety performance, and continually improve. Furthermore, the OHSMS framework provided by the standard can help organizations address communicable diseases, such as the Coronavirus, by conducting risk assessments and considering legal and other requirements related to workplace routines, employee health screenings, training, exposure reporting, and travel restrictions
