One of the key components of Social Sustainability is the management of the health and safety of workers, visitors and all other people within the control and influence of an organisation. Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) is a fundamental part of any organization’s risk management and sustainability strategy.
According to a recent study by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), over 7 600 people die each day from work-related accidents or diseases – that’s over 2.78 million every year. The burden of occupational injuries and diseases is significant, both for employers and the wider economy, resulting in losses from early retirements, staff absence and rising insurance premiums.
Implementing an OHSMS is crucial to business sustainability as it enables an organization to:
- Protect its workforce and others under its control
- Comply with legal requirements
- Facilitate continual improvement
ISO 45001 is the new international standard for an OHSMS. While it is similar to OHSAS 18001, the new ISO 45001 standard adopts the Annex SL top-level framework of all new and revised ISO management system standards. ISO 45001 can be aligned with other management systems standards, such as ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. ISO 45001 was published in March 2018.
