What are the benefits of ISO 45001 certification?
Certification to the International standard ISO 45001 demonstrates that there is management commitment to safe work practices and the appropriate business infrastructure to make every reasonable attempt to bring certainty and consistency in safety performance.
- Ensures you have an effective OHS policy and objectives
- Reduces workplace injuries
- A process to identify hazards and manage safety risks
- Demonstrate your commitment to safety to internal and external stakeholders
- Access to key markets
ISO 45001 has also been designed to be easily integrating to ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems and ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems in mind. If you’re already certified to either or both of these standards ISO 45001 is able to be easily integrated with your existing systems or if its something you may need in the future implementing your system to ISO 45001 can be easily integrated.
The standard also requires an organization to create, monitor and measure their own occupational, health and safety performance. This will allow your organisation to measure its own performance, address these issues and continue to refine and improve your organisational occupational, health and safety performance; the standard facilitates continual improvement.
