ISO 45001 was published as an International Standard in March 2018. The US TAG had overwhelmingly voted in favor of the DIS2 when they met in September 2017. Many European members of ISO/PC 283 had a few more issues and some were philosophically against the standard in the first place.

If you recall the history of the ISO 45001 or OHSAS 18001, it was voted down twice by the ISO body. This effort to make it a DIS and a FDIS was also fraught with issues. You may recall that the ILO had a turf war with ISO over who is responsible for Health and Safety standards. It is now good to know that these issues are behind us. The DIS was then voted down and the DIS2 took some time to make it out of committees. The DIS2 meetings in the US TAG in September were thorough and very democratic. Multiple key issues were boiled down to three show stoppers which we will detail in the webinar.

Not only was the DIS2 for ISO 45001 voted on quite positively by the ISO/PC TAG 283, but the FDIS and IS was also accepted with a large majority. After the DIS2 was accepted, there were only two options for the FDIS, you either accept it as is or you vote it down. The US TAG accepted it as is with editorial comments. There is a general feeling that this is a good standard and will help organizations implement and transition from the OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001. It is also felt that due the high level structure, the standard will attract many new entrants.

Join us for an overview of the ISO 45001 which now replaces the OHSAS 18001 standard. It is time to start planning on implementing ISO 45001 if you are already OHSAS 18001 certified. If you are ISO 9001 certified or have implemented a derivative standard like AS9100, IATF 16949, and/or ISO 14001, join this webinar to find out why ISO 45001 may be the standard for you.
