ISO 45001 - Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS)
Thousands of people die every year during work. Occupational diseases and injuries ratio has increased significantly in recent years. Due to these issues organizations loses loyal staff either permanently (death cases) or prematurely (early retirement due to injuries). In case of health and life insurance, organizations have to bear more expenses in terms of premiums
In order to overcome these issues, ISO 45001 Standard is introduced. Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) helps organizations to minimize issues by implementing a framework to improve safety of their staff, creating safer working conditions and reducing workplaces risks.
ISO 45001 can be applied to any type of organization and can co-exist with other health and safety programs.
