ISO 45001 benefits

  • Increase organisational resilience through proactive risk prevention, innovation and continual improvement
  • Strengthening of legal and regulatory compliance whilst reducing business losses
  • Demonstrates brand responsibility by committing to safe, healthy and sustainable work
  • One global occupational health and safety system for all businesses, of all sizes

Why ISO 45001 is good for your organization

ISO 45001 is designed to prevent work-related injury and ill-health and to provide safe and healthy workplaces.

As an international standard, ISO 45001 crosses geographic, political, economic, commercial and social boundaries. This sets a single benchmark for the management of occupational health and safety. So if your organization operates or trades internationally, you can work to a single standard which can simplify your business.

Whether you are currently working to BS OSHAS 18001 or country specific standards such as ANSI/ASSE Z10 2012, CAN/CSA-Z1000-14, AS/NZS 48001:2001 or others, you can upgrade to ISO 45001 now.


Or if you are new to occupational health and safety management it’s a great framework to put into your business to build organizational resilience.


What are the benefits of ISO 45001?

  • Create the best possible working conditions across your organisation
  • Identify hazards and put in place controls to manage them
  • Promote workplace health and safety. Reduce workplace accidents and illness to cut related costs and downtime
  • Engage and motivate staff with better, safer working conditions
  • Demonstrate compliance to customers and suppliers 

And if work-related road safety is a concern, ISO 45001 can be easily combined with ISO 39001 Road Traffic Safety to make sure you address the increasing risks presented to your employees in all work related activities.
