​BSEN ISO 45001:2018

Most of you will be aware that the OHSAS 18001 Standard was updated in March 2018.If you are certificated to these standards you have until September 2021 to update to the new version.

The standard is now aligned to ISO 9001 and ISO14001 with new sections added which are now aligned so that all sections correspond in each standard.

There have been some subtle changes which include important small print passages which can easily be missed. The important changes include:

  • The requirement for a Management Representative has been removed with the emphasis been placed upon Top Management.

  • Future audits will include an interview with the most senior person on site.

  • Companies have to identify "Interested Parties" and document their requirements.

  • Preventive Action has been removed and replaced with Risk Management

  • More emphasis on Consultation and Particpation  with Workers

P&T Associates can help you move to the new standards as painless as possible with the minimum of fuss.
