ISO 45001 was developed to help organisations meet their health and safety obligations in a competent and successful behaviour through controlling the potential hazards within an organisation. Despite not being an ISO standard, ISO 45001 has been developed to be mutually compatible with the ISO 9001 (Quality Management System) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System) standards, thus facilitating the achieving of a 3-in-1 integrated management system strategy for organisations.
The ISO 45001 standard is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act methodology, with an emphasis on continual improvement. The following steps form the basic structure of the management system and link into the structure of ISO 45001.
Creating competitive advantage through improved performance
Creating value through sustainable business practices
Minimizing disruption through effective risk management
Managing risk to reduce accidents and improve performance
Making the entity more resilient to potential threats and allow to resume operations
