ISO 45001:2018 (Health & Safety)

What it is?

Whilst Health & Safety legislation is well publicised,  ISO 45001:2018 provides a verification of compliance against a vast number of legal requirements.

Health & Safety compliance is a mandatory item for any organisation, even those that are not required to document a formal policy (under 5 employees). Legislation specifies that individuals, rather than companies, can be held liable for not adhering to health and safety requirements.

ISO 45001:2018 is an International Standard that is widely recognised for demonstrating an organisation’s commitment to health and safety through robust controls and monitoring processes. It provides the mechanisms to identify relevant legislation and demonstrate compliance thus minimising risk to employees and the business.

Health & Safety legislation is typically enforced by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or via Local Authorities.
