ISO 45001:2018 is an international standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). It provides a framework for companies to manage and control health and safety risks in the workplace and its purpose is to help improve overall employee well-being.
Being ISO 45001:2018 certified means that the company has demonstrated its commitment to worker health and safety by implementing an occupational health and safety management system (OHSMS).
The certification process involves an initial assessment with regular surveillance assessments to ensure that the company continues to meet the requirements. The ISO certification is awarded by a third-party auditor accredited by the ISO.
