ISO 45001 – A Global OH&S Management System Standard

Earn 1.5 CM Credit Hours/ 1.5 Contact Hours/ 0.15 COC

Earlier this year, ISO initiated the development of a new occupational health and safety management system standard.  This standard, designated as ISO 45001, will establish globally-accepted requirements for third-party certification of an OH&S management system.  It is intended to replace the OHSAS 18001 standard.

In order to conform to the requirements set out in Annex SL of the ISO Directives,  the rules governing the development of ISO standards, this standard will utilize the same common structure, definitions and core text that is being used for the revisions of ISO 14001 and ISO 9001, the environmental and quality management system standards.

This webinar will:

  • Outline the high-level elements of ISO 45001

  • Discuss the three impacts ISO 45001 will have on organizations 

  • Identify the five key issues that will need to be resolved in the development process
