The International Standard ISO 45001 (formerly OHSAS 18001) provides a framework for the management of Occupational Health & Safety issues, regarding the prevention of work accidents and illnesses, and maintaining safe and healthy working conditions within the company.
The implementation of an Occupational Health & Safety Management System that meets the requirements of the EN ISO 45001 standard, contributes to the continuous improvement of the company’s performance in terms of Occupational Health & Safety issues, compliance with legal requirements and achievement of the respective objectives.
More specifically, the implementation of an Occupational Health and Safety Management System has the following benefits:
The ISO 45001 standard can be applied to any company regardless of its size or type of activities. The implemetation of the ISO 45001 standard by a company leads to relevant certification, following an audit carried out by a Certification Body. The Occupational Health and Safety Management System can be developed in parallel or supplement to another Management System, creating a Total Management System in terms of Quality, Environment, Occupational Health & Safety, Information Security. etc.
