We support you in the transition from OHSAS 18001 to the new standard.

ISO 45001 is currently in the second Draft International Standard stage (DIS2), following more than 3000 comments on the first draft. A final release of the standard is expected in late 2017 or first half of 2018, depending on the progress. After the final standard is released, companies certified to OHSAS 18001 will have a three-year transition period.

  • Self-study material; such as webinars, the transition guidance and self-assessment checklist which you can freely access below.
  • Gap Analysis of your current state of readiness
