About ISO/DIS 45001.2

ISO/DIS 45001.2 ( DIS 2) is the first internationally recognized worldwide draft standard on Occupational Health and Safety that will enable organizations, regardless of context and size, to provide a safe and healthy workplace for their workers, visitors, contractors and other interested parties to prevent death, work-related injury, ill -health and to continually improve its OH&S performance.

ISO/DIS 45001.2  has been developed using the ISO High Level Structure for management systems.  This structure is aligned to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.

This structure will:

  • Provide an integrated approach to organizational management
  • Ensure the organization establishes clear policies which are compatible with the overall strategic objectives and direction of the organization
  • Promote continual improvement across the organization
  • Enable the organization to address and manage risk in the workplace

What’s new in the international standard?

With the new standard you can ensure your health and safety management is aligned with the strategic directions of the organization.

The key changes in the standard focus on:

  • Context of the organization
  • Understanding the needs and expectations of the worker and other interested parties
  • Leadership, culture and commitment
  • Polices linked to overall strategic objectives and direction of the organization
  • Participation and consultation
  • Risk and opportunities
