It’s a comprehensive guide to workplace health and wellness
The standard provides a lot more detailed standards for the preparation than the predecessor, OHSAS 18001. With the new definition, it stretches its scope way beyond what was previously acceptable, to cover the societal consequences associated with burnout, stress-related disease and violence. For workplace settings, it also contains less visible risks, such as back pain and repetitive strain injuries.
Worker engagement leads to an increase in performance
A very important new concept is the position of workers in helping to identify the potential health and safety hazards in the workplace. This will take the shape of a management committee to ensure that health & safety issues are defined at all stages of the organization. Due to legislation, it encourages risk-based planning to help encourage proactive steps to mitigate occupational injuries and deaths.
The High-Level Structure shapes synergies with other standards
ISO 45001 quality specifications comply with a High-Level Architecture as with other ISO management framework codes, streamlining numerous certification frameworks. This often complies with existing standards including the International Labor Organization OSH Criteria, and the ILO ‘s Foreign Labor Specifications and Conventions.

It follows a risk-based approach
The obligation to follow a risk-based strategy is strongly associated with the focus on the corporate environment when designing and executing an OHSMS. To guarantee the OHSMS achieves the target objectives, an organization has to identify the problems and opportunities it has to solve. Such challenges and opportunities involve those related to or defined by, the organizational context. The organization will need to be planning efforts to address these risks and opportunities, incorporating them into OHSMS processes and evaluating the progress of these steps.
