ISO 45001

What is ISO 45001:2016?

Latest update on ISO 45001


The development of ISO 45001, is a new standard consolidating the best practice knowledge on Occupation Health and Safety (OH&S). ISO 45001 is expected to replace BS OHSAS 18001, the world’s leading management system standard for OH&S.

The development of ISO 45001 reached the Draft International Standard (DIS) stage earlier this year when the DIS was published in February. This has been followed by a three-month period to allow for comments and balloting. The next milestone will be the ISO committee meeting to be held in June 2016. The committee will review the ballot results and manage the comments that have been submitted.



One of the many features is that this new standard can be easily integrated with the other new standards – ISO 9001, 14001 and others.
