ISO 45001 is the new international standard for Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) management system that will replace OHSAS 18001. ISO 45001 sets a framework that can help companies proactively address risks in the workplace, risks that cause over 7,600 deaths daily due to work-related accidents and diseases.

Being certified for ISO 45001 means that an organization’s OH&S management system has met the world standard of practice intended to keep the workplace safe for all employees.

According to ISO, the successful implementation of an effective OH&S management system can be dependent on the following key factors:

  1. Management-led culture of commitment to safety
  2. Inclusive and open communication amongst employees
  3. Proper allocation of resources
  4. OH&S policies aligned with company goals
  5. Implementation and continuous improvement of risk management
  6. Legal compliance

A company can self-check and work to implement an effective OH&S management system before consulting an independent certification body to be certified for ISO 45001. Paper-based audits though under the new ISO 45001 requirements can be burdensome and time-consuming, running the risk of delivering the opposite of the intended objective of the OH&S Management System. Time spent on documentation and manual filing of records could be better spent working on the actual hazards found during audits.

iAuditor, the world’s most powerful mobile inspection app can help eliminate a workplaces’ dependence on paper checklists. Spend less time documenting and reporting on workplace hazards and risks and allot more time and resources on actually fixing issues and improving workplace safety, while at the same time retaining a detailed online record.

Proactively catch risks, immediately take corrective action, and automatically keep records with iAuditor.

Here is a collection of our carefully prepared workplace safety checklists you can browse and use as part of achieving ISO 45001 certification and ongoing compliance.
