OHSAS 45001:2018 Occupational Health and safety management Systems - Specifications

The ISO 45001:2018 occupational health and safety management system (OHSMS) standard was published in March 2018, replacing the OHSAS 18001 management system standard. Publication of this new standard is part of a broader effort by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to update and align all of the specification standards for the management of Environmental, Energy, Health and Safety, and Quality (EEHSQ).

The objective of the ISO 45001 effort was to implement an international OHSMS standard to replace OHSAS 18001 (a British Standard developed by a coalition of registrars and used internationally). It included making structural changes in accordance with a model that is affecting all new ISO standards, addressing broader national and international OHS elements, and ensuring adherence to the basic principles of OHSAS 18001 (which include continual improvement).
