ISO 45001:2016 - New occupational health and safety management standard
ISO recently announced that ISO Committee ISO/PC 283 - Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems, has been formed with an objective to develop and publish an international standard for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) based on OHSAS 18001. The new standard will be known as ISO 45001.
On a global scale poor health and safety management costs around 4% of global GDP, which is unacceptable. An international standard for occupational health & safety has the potential to save lives, reduce accidents and improve employee morale.
At the first meeting of the committee ISO/PC 283, in October 2013, established an outline project plan for the development and publication of ISO 45001:
- ISO/CD 45001 (first committee draft) to be published by May 2014;
ISO/DIS 45001 (first draft international standard) to be published by February 2015;
ISO/FDIS 45001 (final draft international standard) to be published by March 2016;
ISO 45001 to be published in October 2016.
The new standard will comply with Annex SL, which means that all the management system standards will eventually be aligned. This decision was taken by the ISO Joint Technical Coordination Group (JTCG) in an effort to make life easier for organisations who wish to have a single management system.
Annex SL defines a common high-level structure for all new and revised ISO management system standards - using common text in the standards. This will also have a significant impact on the revisions of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 - currently being prepared.
The high level structure of the standard will be:
2. Normative references
3. Terms and definitions
4. Context of the organisation
9. Performance Evaluation
Clauses 4, 5, 9 and 10 are significant deviations from the present ISO management system standards.
