This month we celebrate the first birthday of ISO 45001:2018 OH&S; the internationally recognised ISO standard for Occupational Health and Safety – helping companies provide better working environments.
So, we are now one year on and ask ourselves “how has ISO 45001 been received?”
Let’s look at the stats…
*statistics supplied by CQI IRCA, March 2018 – March 2019.
With the 3 year migration period now well underway, we predict the next 2 years will show an increase in Migration as 18001 OHSAS certified companies move across to the new standard (March 2021 being the final deadline). Though, of course, ISO 45001 isn’t just for existing 18001 OHSAS auditors. We are seeing a large interest from those new to Occupational Health & Safety; perhaps having the ISO ‘stamp of approval’ has raised more awareness?
If you think it’s time to get yourself or your team trained, then take a look at our ISO 45001 courses:
