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.
