WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BEING ISO 45001 CERTIFIED?

Being certified to ISO 45001 shows your customers that you have been externally verified as having a system that meets the minimum requirements of ISO 45001. It allows your stakeholders to trust your organization and its ability to manage occupational health and safety, and reduce OH&S risks, and therefore reduce workplace related injury or illness.

ISO 45001 provides numerous benefits and opportunities, including:

  • Tender for work – Declare conformance with the standard and tender for work, including government contracts​ and large corporate jobs.
  • Provide evidence for stakeholders – Enhance your reputation by providing formal recognition of your management processes to customers and interested stakeholders.
  • Legal compliance – Provide evidence your organisation meets regulatory requirements, as ISO 45001 instructs that your organisation must meet legal obligations.Reduce workplace related injury or illness – By managing OH&S hazards and risks you can reduce workplace related injuries and illnesses, creating cost savings in worker sick leave and sometimes insurance premiums.Create evidence of due diligence if an incident occurs – Minimise the risk of legal action from worker’s compensation, liability​ claims and provide evidence should an incident occur.
  • Create your marketing advantage – Create a competitive advantage and marketing opportunity as certification can be a key differentiator in today’s challenging marketplace.

What Does It Mean To Be ISO 45001 Certified?

When you are certified to ISO 45001, you are able to get external certification of your system. This helps show interested parties, stakeholders and customers that you have met the requirements set out in ISO 45001:2018, and that you have systems in place to mitigate risks and build confidence.

ISO 45001 shows you are actively working to reduce risks that exist in the workplace, and therefore reduce workplace related injury and illness. This can provide significant cost savings as you can reduce employee sick leave, compensation and insurance.

What Are The Requirements Of ISO 45001?

ISO 45001:2018 is the standard that outlines the OH&S requirements that need to be met to become certified. These requirements are broken down into clauses that provide the framework for your management system.

The clauses are Context of the Organization (clause 4), Leadership (clause 5), Planning (clause 6), Support (clause 7), Operation (clause 8), Performance Evaluation (clause 9) and Improvement (clause 10).
