ISO 45001: 2018 Overview & Actions to Address Risks & Opportunities

The objective of an occupational health and safety (OHS) management system is to provide a framework and process for effective management of OHS risks, opportunities, and performance. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) released the ISO 45001 OHS management system standard in March 2018 to replace the OHSAS 18001:2007 standard. The new standard is structured in accordance with Annex SL so as to facilitate integration with other new management system standards (e.g., ISO 14001, ISO 9001, ISO 50001). The timeframe for transition from OHSAS 18001 is three years from publication of the new standard.

This webinar is one in a series that will provide health and safety, environmental and business professionals with an overview of the new standard, and with each focusing on a specific theme. For this webinar, the focus will be on management of risk and opportunity:

Webinar topics
  • The influence of context, needs and expectations of interested parties, and scope

  • Techniques for identification of OHS hazards and assessment of OHS risks

  • Assessment of OHS opportunities (the flip side of risk)

  • Influence of legal and other requirements on OHS hazards, risks and opportunities

  • Planning action

The webinar will provide one basis on which companies can plan their transition to or implement the ISO 45001 standard.
