Businesses have an obligation to ensure the health and safety of their people.
Legislation requires that we identify workplace hazards, assess the risk, develop and implement controls, train and involve staff, monitor the safety program and update controls where workplace hazards change. Records of safety program maintenance are required.

ISO 45001:2018 helps an organization to achieve the intended outcomes of its OH&S management system.

ISO 45001:2018 enables an organization, through its OH&S management system, to integrate other aspects of health and safety, such as worker wellness/wellbeing.
ISO 45001:2018 does not address issues such as product safety, property damage or environmental impacts, beyond the risks to workers and other relevant interested parties.
ISO 45001:2018 can be used in whole or in part to systematically improve occupational health and safety management. However, claims of conformity to this document are not acceptable unless all its requirements are incorporated into an organization's OH&S management system and fulfilled without exclusion.
