ISO 45001 is a newly established standard. It is a framework for the OH&S management system. It has been developed to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks, and create safer working conditions. The new ISO 45001 standard implements a high-level structure, which is compatible with ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. The integration of these management systems adds value to the organizations and raises the health and safety bar.

ISO 45001 enables an organization to integrate worker well-being under the health and safety system. Occupational Health & Safety can be used in whole or in part to systematically improve the management system.
