From OHSAS 18001 to the new ISO 45001
In March 2018 ISO is expected to announce the publication of ISO 45001:2018 standard – Occupational health and safety management systems. Requirements with guidance for use.
Oftenly referred to mistakenly as ISO 18001, British standard OHSAS 18001 has not been developed under the International Standards Organization (ISO) „umbrella”.
Different national standards that address the discipline of occupational health and safety management are used today in more than 127 countries, according to ISO statistics and most of them are based on the requirements of OHSAS 18001.
