ISO 45001:2018 is a new International standard which provides a framework, regardless of size, activity and geographical location, to manage and continuously improve Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) within the organization. By adopting a systematic approach including worker participation, the organization can integrate OH&S within its business processes which will contribute to prevention of accidents and long and short term ill health effects. The standard provides a platform to develop a positive safety culture leading to worker wellbeing. Once the policy framework has been put in place, along with processes to facilitate the organization’s commitment, the standard then asks the organization to audit, review and improve the system including assessment of compliance obligations. This approach provides the organization with both assurance and business continuity. Standard requirements can significantly help the organization improve internally; by embedding a culture of challenge and continual improvement.
The ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety Management Assessment Module within Performax is designed to help organisations ensure continuous compliance to the standard, based on LIVE employee feedback on the key components of the standard. In addition, it presents advanced analytics and collaborative action planning capabilities. There is a 30-day free trial (max. 10 users) available for new customers.
The assessment module can be customised and implemented within 2-3 hours. The initial round of feedback from stakeholders may take 1-2 weeks. Reports are generated in real-time. So, within 2-4 weeks, you’ll be able to ‘sense and respond’ to health and safety issues, and take action on innovative improvement ideas.
In 2021 OHSAS 18001 will be withdrawn leaving ISO 45001 the primary international OHS management system standard.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.
