ISO 45001 - Occupational health and safety
There were over 130 fatal accidents in the UK alone during 2016/17, and over 610,000 accidents reported to the HSE. The emotional costs to those involved, as well as the legal, financial and reputation costs to the businesses concerned are significant and have a negative impact on productivity, efficiency and improvement. Some workers’ lives are never the same again after an accident, and the impact on the colleagues who work with these people can be huge.
Standards in other countries are varied and this is problematic for those organisations whose business spread to more than one country.

Will ISO 45001 replace BS OHSAS 18001?
The simple answer is Yes!. Whilst the formal date is yet to be announced it is widely anticipated that this will be in place in February 2018. There are some notable advantages of ISO45001 over BS OHSAS 18001, including:
It has been created by an international committee of specialists to address global variations in approach and health and safety culture
Based on the Annex SL framework, it will integrate seamlessly with other ISO management systems, including ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, and ISO 27001:2015.
This means that organisations can harmonise its different systems and develop an Integrated Management System. This can save time, ensure an holistic approach to business efficiency and reduce duplication
