On 12 March 2018, the International Accreditation Forum Inc. (IAF), in cooperation with the ISO and OHSAS Project Group, published the new international Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems standard, ISO 45001: 2018. The aim of ISO 45001 is to promote and protect the physical and mental health of workers, a responsibility held by any organisation regardless of its size or sector.
According to the ISO, every 15 seconds a worker dies from a work-related accident or disease, and 153 people experience a work-related injury. These represent an enormous burden for organisations and society as a whole, with , over 2.3 million deaths a year, and more than 300 million non-fatal accidents.
Don’t become another statistic, ISO 45001 helps you protect your people.
