What is ISO 45001?

ISO 45001 is an internationally recognized standard of requirements for an effective Occupational Health & Safety System (OH&S).

ISO 45001 helps organizations with the framework to improve workplace safety and reduce employee injuries.

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) introduced the standard to help organizations with a comprehensive approach to OH&S management.

The standard was created by a committee of occupational health and safety experts and follows similar management system approaches such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001.

ISO 45001 also includes other International Standards in this area, such as the International Labor Organization’s ILO-OSH Guidelines, various national standards, and the ILO’s international labor standards and conventions. For more information, please read our ISO 45001 Checklist. We have also created a guide on the benefits of Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems

Help You Prepare

Our team will get in touch to outline the process and explain the plan for your initial assessment. We can also signpost you to any resources that you might find useful on your journey to becoming certified.


Step One – Identify Gaps

Referred to as a “Stage one assessment”, our auditor will conduct an initial review of your management system to determine if the core requirements of the standard are being met. We will provide a detailed report outlining the areas you need to focus on in order to comply with the requirements.


Step Two – In-Depth Review

When you are ready, an auditor will conduct a “Stage two assessment” to establish if your organisation meets the requirements of the standard. We review any actions taken to address findings raised at Stage one and our auditor will make a recommendation as to whether certification can be issued, based on the audit outcomes.

Please note: It is typical for gaps to be identified during the audit, which will need to be addressed through corrective actions before certification can be approved.

Step Three – Certification Issued

Following a review by our Compliance Team, a decision will be made as to whether your certification can be issued.
