Dear Friends and Colleagues....

In this edition of the NSAI newsletter, we take a look at the world’s first management standard for occupational health and safety, I.S. ISO 45001, welcome our new chairperson, Mr James Kennedy, and congratulate two Irish companies becoming certified to a globally-recognised standard in information security management.

In addition, we would like to invite suitable individuals to apply to represent Ireland at the International Electrotechnical Young Professionals Workshop in South Korea this October.

If you wish to learn more about NSAI, feel free to follow/like us on FacebookTwitter and LinkedIn.

I.S. ISO 45001 was Published on March 12th

The world’s first occupational health and safety international standard, I.S. ISO 45001, was published on March 12 2018. 

I.S. ISO 45001 will give organisations an internationally-recognised occupational health and safety standard to follow. With 2.78 million people dying in workplace accidents worldwide every year, including 50 on average in Ireland, its publication should be warmly welcomed. Key potential benefits from use of the standard include a reduction of workplace incidents and reduced absenteeism. 

More than fifty Irish companies, including a Dublin-headquartered construction firm and a Limerick consultancy service, will be among the first organisations in the world to achieve certification.Read more...
