ISO 45001 Health & Safety

Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems

The most important responsibility for any employer is to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of their employees and anyone affected by their organisation’s activities. There’s a legal and moral obligation to do this, and there’s also a compelling financial case to be made too. And there’s no better way to ensure that you are equipped to face up to your responsibilities than by implementing the ISO 45001 Occupational Health & Safety Management System (OHSMS).

ISO 45001 is routinely required as a condition of winning tenders with many larger businesses and public institutions. It means they can have confidence that you are a responsible employer.

When it’s implemented properly, ISO 45001 provides a framework to help you comply with legislation and improve risk management. The outcome of this is that you can reduce ill health and injuries which leads to better business performance.

Why You Need ISO 45001 Certification

It makes the workplace safer

The prime objective of an OHSMS is to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of your employees. ISO 45001 provides the framework and the disciplines to ensure that you are able to do this. It helps embed a safety culture. If you take expert advice on developing and implementing your system to ensure that you are following best practice, you should see a reduction in accidents, injuries, ill health and absences.

You will win more business

ISO 45001 certification is often a mandatory requirement when you are bidding to win work with larger organisations and the public sector. They need to know that they are using a supplier who is committed to safety, is reliable and shares their values or putting the welfare of employees first.

You avoid fines and other penalties

By implementing an effective occupational health and safety management system, you reduce the risk of incidents involving staff and any visitors to your premises. This means you are less likely to face penalties from the relevant enforcement authorities. Your certification may also provide mitigation in the event that something does go wrong.

Your workforce is more productive

Not only does better health lead to increased productivity of individual staff when they are in work, it also means you’ll have lower levels of absenteeism. Additionally, a key requirement of an ISO 45001 system is that you engage your staff in the development of the system. The ideas they bring and the improved communications lift the morale of your workforce and your overall productivity.

There will be cost savings

With lower absenteeism, you need fewer replacement staff or a lower head count, meaning lower costs. You may also find that you benefit from lower insurance premiums.
