What it means

Do you have an existing Occupational Health & Safety Management System in place in your organization? Or you want to implement a new one?

Following the publication of ISO 45001, if you have an existing Occupational Health & Safety Management System in place and you have an accredited OHSAS 18001 certificate, please note that you will have 3 years in which you can migrate your actual accredited certificate and upgrade it to a new ISO 45001 accredited certificate. After the 3-year period the OHSAS 18001 standard will no longer be valid. Your organization should prepare for the migration process and we can support you, through:

  • Self-study assessment such as our migration guidance and a self-assessment readiness checklist
  • Gap Analysis
  • E-learning
  • Training courses, including internal auditor and lead auditor training
  • Migration audits

If you are going to implement a new Occupational Health & Safety Management System, we recommend to focus on the new ISO 45001 standard. Purchase the standard through your National Standardization Body or ISO ,and start train people in your organization. We can support you through:

  • E-learning
  • Training courses, including internal auditor and lead auditor training
