What is ISO 45001?

Over 7 600 people die each day from work-related accidents or diseases - that’s over 2.78 million every year*. The burden of occupational injuries and diseases is significant, both for employers and the wider economy, resulting in losses from early retirements, staff absence and rising insurance premiums.

ISO 45001 brings occupational health and safety standards into the new ISO annex SL structure as the first globally recognised health and safety standard.We can help you understand what is in the new standard, what requirements it places upon your business, and how your business can transition to or achieve ISO 45001:2018.

List of documents required by ISO 45001:2018

The ISO 45001 standard provides us with some insight about what documents are required. Compared to OHSAS 18001, there are not too many changes, but the documentation requirements are easier to manage, following the logic of the new versions of other ISO standards. Of course, the standard does not explicitly mention documents and records, but uses the term “documented information.”

The following represent a list of documents that you need to maintain in order to comply with ISO 45001:

  • The scope of the OH&S MS (clause  4.3)
