Put Occupational Health and Safety In Your Organization First

Managing health and safety risks should be top-of-mind for every company, even for those who haven’t reported an accident or injury for an extended period. Employers everywhere are striving for safer workplaces where employees can do their jobs, while still making it home safely to their families and friends.

Occupational injuries, diseases, and high-risk working hazards are a significant burden for both the employer and the economy as a whole – these undesirable outcomes can result in gaps in staffing, rising insurance costs, or worst of all tragic loss.

To better address these issues, the ISO 45001:2018 standard was developed. The new Occupational Health and Safety Management System will eventually replace OHSAS 18001, and helps organizations reduce the aforementioned burdens by providing a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions, regardless of the location or industry.
 

ISO 45001:2018 and Its Benefits and Flexibility

Easily integrated with both ISO 9001 quality management systems and ISO 14001 environmental management systems, SQA offers ISO 45001 to manufactures and service providers worldwide. In addition to promoting safety and helping manage risk, adherence to these processes and procedures will result in:

  • Protecting employees and stakeholders from unnecessary risk
  • Reduced lost time due to accidents and near misses
  • Improved employee involvement with training and responsibility
  • Enhanced reputation, marketing capabilities, and an improved corporate image
  • Reduced costs and limited liabilities
