ISO 45001 Health & Safety
The latest draft of ISO 45001, the planned international standard for safety and health management systems has been approved in an international ballot.
However, further amendments to the standard, which is due to replace BS OHSAS 18001, may push publication of the final text into next year.
A three-year transition period is anticipated after publication of the final standard. ISO 45001 will join a suite of standards for management systems, including ISO 14001 for environmental management and ISO 9001 for quality systems.
