ISO 45001 - Occupational Health and Safety Marcela Ivankovich

More than 6 300 people die every day from work-related accidents or illnesses, that is, almost 2.3 million each year *.

The burden of occupational injuries and illnesses is significant, both for employers and for the economy in general, resulting in losses due to early retirement, absence of staff and increased insurance premiums.

To combat the problem, ISO is developing a new standard, ISO 45001, Occupational health and safety management systems: requirements that will help organizations reduce this burden by providing a framework to improve employee safety, reduce occupational hazards and create better safer working conditions, all over the world.

The standard is currently being developed by a committee of experts in occupational safety and health, and will follow other generic approaches to the management system, such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. It will take into account other international standards in this area, such as OHSAS 18001, the International. ILO-OSH Guidelines of the Labor Organization, various national standards and international labor standards and conventions of the ILO.
