BS OHSAS 18001 has been withdrawn and replaced by ISO 45001

BS OHSAS 18001 has been replaced by ISO 45001 the new international standard for occupational health and safety management. Organizations who are already certified to BS OHSAS 18001 will need to migrate to ISO 45001 by the end of March 2021. Migration audits can be delivered 100% remotely in most cases.

Much of the DNA from BS OHSAS 18001 can be found in ISO 45001, so you'll recognize the principles but many enhancements are delivered in ISO 45001 including stronger leadership, better worker involvement and a focus on health, particularly mental health.

 

COVID-19

Where organizations can accept audits either remotely or on site, the deadline for migration remains 31 March 2021.

For organizations that cannot accept audits due to COVID-19, it may be possible to extend the migration deadline to 30 September 2021. A request for an extension will need submitted to the local BSI office by 31st January 2021.
