Occupational Health and Safety Management (ISO 45001)

Training > Occupational Health and Safety Management (ISO 45001)

ISO 45001:2018 has replaced OHSAS 18001:2007 as the International Standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. Omnex’s OH&S courses have been updated to follow the new standard.

Implementing an Occupational Health & Safety Management System that fulfills the requirements of ISO 45001:2018 is the first step an organization needs to take in order to manage its OH&S risks and improve its OH&S performance. With an OH&S management system based on ISO 45001, an organization is equipped to eliminate hazards and minimize OH&S risks by taking preventive and protective measures that will help provide a safe and healthy workplace.

ISO 45001 was developed following the ISO High-Level Structure, which includes identical core text and common terms with core definitions, seen in other management system standards such as ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management Systems) and ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management Systems). Therefore, the HLS will allow for easy implementation of multiple ISO standards. ISO 45001 also follows the Plan-Do-Check-Act model as seen in other standards, which provides a process-based approach to achieving continual improvement.

Integrated Management Systems

Integrated Management Systems (IMS) is the integration of QMS, EMS, OHSAS and other regulations / standards and requirements into a single management system. IMS fosters the approach that an organization should establish one integrated system that is best for the business and not set up separate, often duplicate, processes or documentation to satisfy each management standard. IMS contains company-wide processes that conform to various management system standards such as AS9100, IATF 16949, ISO 22000, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001 but are primarily established in support of the business goals.

At Omnex, integration means developing common organizational processes based on standardized work flows, conducting integrated risk analysis (using FMEAs and Control Plans for quality, environmental and health and safety risks) and conducting integrated audits. At Omnex, we are continuing to pioneer ever more effective and efficient ways of defining, implementing and auditing integrated management systems.

Integration and standardization not only reduce confusion and redundancy in the workplace, but cost an estimated 50% less to implement and most importantly cost 50% less to maintain. Furthermore, the cost for registration is reduced by as much as 33%.

Omnex has been implementing integrated management systems since the 1990s, beginning with the integration of QS-9000 and ISO 14001 in the Americas for Yazaki. Since then, we have integrated ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 for organizations around the world including General Motors and TRW. Lately, we have integrated ISO 9001 and Food Safety Management Systems including an implementation where Food Safety, Quality (ISO 9001), Environmental (ISO 14001), and Health and Safety (ISO 45001) were integrated into one management system. Omnex recently helped Swiss Colony a 100 year-old Food Catalog and Bakery implement FSMS and QMS standards in a record six months that included QOS/BOS and Phase Gate New Product Development methodologies and 8D Problem Solving techniques.

Omnex provides training for top management in the understanding and integration of multiple integrated management systems, as well as the worlds only lead auditor course in Integrated Management Systems (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001).

Omnex can help you conduct an ISO 9001 Discovery Analysis (or Assessment) or conduct a Best-In-Class assessment to assist your company in making process improvements that result in efficiency and savings.

Omnex will conduct a Discovery Analysis during an initial assessment. Omnex will study your current processes to see the gaps in the systems as well as review Best-In-Class practices depending on the scope of the assessment. Omnex assessments always focus on savings and improvements within the organization. The last day of the assessment centers around feedback and planning with the customer team. An implementation plan, customer/Omnex team, and next steps are completed as a part of the Discovery. A discovery analysis or assessment can be done for process improvement, for new or revised standards, or when the customer is ready for an overhaul of their systems.

Omnexs core strengths are spelled out in the 12 methodologies in which we specialize. Each of these practices are Best In Class practices that can be implemented based on the needs of a specific organization in any industry.
