Understanding how industrial hygiene impacts and interacts with the other components of the new ISO 45001 management system is key to the successful implementation of the standard. This webinar will foster that understanding by introducing attendees to systems thinking, demonstrating why it is an important component of an effective ISO 45001 program. We will focus on the interrelated nature of the exposure risk assessments that industrial hygienists perform. In doing so, we will present strategies for navigating the interlocking relationships between the technical and management aspects of ISO 45001 to create a system—not just a checklist. Ultimately, we will show how a systems approach to workplace health and safety can result in positive benefits across the enterprise.
