    9. Which companies will find ISO 45001 certification appropriate? 
      ISO 45001:2018 is a generic standard and can be applied to all kinds of organisations and set ups irrespective of their nature, type and size of business. It lays a set of guidelines that establish a framework by specifying requirements for your organisation's OHSMS. Aligning your organisation's OHSMS with ISO 45001:2018 can significantly mitigate risk by enhancing safety and lowering the incidents of injury and disease in workplace.
    10. What should we be doing to help us with migration to ISO 45001? 
      The steps to migrate from your current OHSAS 18001 certificate to the ISO 45001:2018 standard will follow the rules defined by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF). Depending on your current certification, transition will take one of the following routes:
    • An accredited OHSAS 18001 certificate will be migrated through a seamless process to ISO 45001:2018 during the 3 years after publication as described by IAF.
    • A non-accredited OHSAS 18001 certificate will follow a specific procedure which will make the transition to ISO 45001:2018 as smooth as possible.

    12. Does ISO 45001 replace OHSAS 18001?

    ISO 45001:2018 replaces OHSAS 18001 as the primary international standard for OH&S management systems. It is expected that organisations currently holding OHSAS 18001 certification will have three years to recertify to the requirements in the new standard.

    13. Has ISO 45001 been published?

    The ISO 45001:2018 standard was released on 12th March, 2018.

    14. What are the key features of ISO 45001:2018?
    Although ISO 45001 constitutes a fully new standard, its foundations already exist and are formulated in OHSAS 18001. Companies that have already implemented an occupational health and safety management system in accordance with OHSAS 18001, and actively apply it in everyday company practice, can therefore expect a smooth transition to ISO 45001.

    Nevertheless, there are some fundamental differences, such as:

    • ISO 45001 implements the ‘High Level Structure’ (HLS), giving it a common framework with other management systems, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
    • SO 45001 places great emphasis on the responsibility of senior management. This aspect has already been implemented in the revised ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards.
    • ISO 45001 explicitly includes persons who are not permanently employed, but are in other ways working under the responsibility of the organisation/company, such as subcontractors, as well as processes that have been outsourced in their entirely.
    • The ISO 45001 standard also introduces the term “opportunities”, as a new aspect in the field of occupational health and safety. This covers issues that go beyond the mere elimination or minimisation of occupational health and safety risks. ISO 45001 will provide new impetus for occupational health and safety practices in organisations. Even experienced health and safety professionals will find that the new regulations provide new incentives for further process enhancements. This translates into additional opportunities for protecting and promoting employees' health and performance, as well as a sustainable improvement of employee motivation.

    15. How long does one need to take to complete all the necessary courses to gain an OH&S Management System 45001 Internal Auditor Certification?
    To complete the internal auditor course and get a certification, user has to take 5 modules of 420 min (including 19011:2018) post which he/she can take a Qualification examination separately to be qualified as Internal Auditor.
