ISO 45001:2018 is a standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system.  The purpose is to promote a safe and healthy workplace that prevents work-related injuries.

Any organization can use the ISO 45001:2018 standard.  The management system promotes the establishment, implementation and maintenance of an OH&S to improve occupational health and safety, eliminate hazards and minimize OH&S risks (including system deficiencies), take advantage of OH&S opportunities, and address system nonconformities.

The intended outcomes of an OH&S management system include:

  1. continual improvement of OH&S performance
  2. fulfilment of legal requirements and other requirements
  3. achievement of OH&S objectives
ISO 45001:2018 is applicable to any organization regardless of its size, type and activities. It is applicable to the OH&S risks under the organization's control, taking into account factors such as the context in which the organization operates and the needs and expectations of its workers and other interested parties.
