ISO 45001, the first ISO standard on occupational health and safety management, was published in 2018. Since then, the ISO technical committee responsible for the standard has been developing supporting guidance in areas such as the management of psychological health, safety and well-being in the workplace; working safely during the COVID-19 pandemic; and OHS performance evaluation.
During this webinar, experts will describe the committee’s work, its current and planned deliverables, and its preparation for the revision of ISO 45001. They’ll outline key features of ISO 45001, as well as the guidance in ISO 45003 and ISO PAS 45005, and provide insight into how to build an effective OHS management system for your organization.
