Paperless Safety Inspection with ISO 45001 – Improving OHS

Mobile Application Press Release

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has developed a new standard, ISO 45001 “Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems - Requirements” to aid in further preventing work-related accidents.

Providing a framework to improve conditions and employee safety in the workplace, the new standard is centralized around the idea of reducing possible risks. The standard follows other industry standards such as OHSAS 18001 and its expected full publication in mid-2018. Regardless of company size and stature, the new ISO 45001 standard aims to fulfil objectives for any type of organization by:
 improving its ability to respond to regulatory compliance issues
 reducing the overall costs of incidents
 reducing downtime and the costs of disruption to operations
 reducing the cost of insurance premiums
 reducing absenteeism and employee turnover rates
One of the ways in which ISO 45001 aims to address industry problems and improve the Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) field is by its integration with management systems. Today this is possible by implementing technology in the hands of companies, safety inspectors and the workforce – giving them a modern and accurate risk management solution.

Safety inspections through the use of mobile devices (tablets /mobile phones) are particularly beneficial, with all data and records able to be streamlined and synchronised with in-depth dynamic analysis. Paperless Inspection software is becoming a powerful tool for both the safety inspector and the back-end team. This is highlighted by the important benefit of paperless safety inspection checklists providing quick updates over-the-air using internet connectivity. Paperless safety applications using mobile devices can include reference material and relevant extracts from documents (such as the ISO
45001), meaning there can be a rapid uptake of new standard and regulations. Implementing digital inspection software and mobile devices alongside ISO 45001 is a sure-fire way to modernising safety inspections.
The ISO aims for its ISO 45001 new standard to improve OHS through:
 developing and implementing an OHS policy and objectives
 establishing systematic processes which consider its “context” and take into account its risks and opportunities, and legal requirements
 determining the hazards and OHS risks associated with its activities; seeking to eliminate them, or putting in controls to minimize their potential effects
 establishing operational controls to manage its OHS risks and its legal and other requirements
 increasing awareness of risks
 evaluating its OHS performance and seeking to improve it, through taking appropriate actions
 ensuring workers take an active role in OHS matters
