ISO 45001 - occupational health and safety – new draft standard


ISO 45001 on occupational health and safety has been approved for Draft International Standard public consultation.

Designed to help organizations of all sizes and industries, the future standard is expected to reduce workplace injuries and illnesses around the world.

ISO 45001 is based on the common elements found in all of ISO’s management system standards, assuring a high level of compatibility with the new versions of ISO 9001, Quality management systems, and ISO 14001, Environmental management systems. It uses a simple Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) model, which provides a framework for organizations to plan what they need to put in place in order to minimize the risk of harm.
