In 2021 OHSAS 18001 will be withdrawn leaving ISO 45001 the primary international OHS management system standard. The standard provides a systematic approach for senior leadership to assess OH&S risk and opportunities, monitor and review safety performance and set objectives for continual improvement within the ‘context’ of organisational activities. This may include, for example, worker health promotion campaigns or the monitoring of the OH&S effects of products and services provided.
Implementation is a demonstration and commitment from senior leadership to internal and external stakeholders (interested parties) of the intent to protect workers from accidents including short and long term ill health effects. Of course, this may in-turn reduce downtime, lead to reduction or prevention of worker loss time hours and potential prosecution.
