The three-year migration period for ISO 45001:2018 has been extended to September 2021, so now is the optimal time to check for gaps in your organisation’s compliance.
What is ISO 45001:2018?
This is an International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) for management systems of Occupational Health and Safety / WHS, with updates published in 2018 – creating 1SO 45001:2018. It is important to review the 2018 additions and updates.
Why do these need to be reviewed now?
A three-year migration period for the 2018 updates was put in place – providing time for workplaces to update their WHS Compliance – by September 2021.
How do I Check I’m ISO 45001:2018 Compliant?
You need to review your WHS Management System for gaps in compliance to allow time for any required updates to be made. The Australian Institute of Health & Safety has published an overview.
Alternatively, you can save time and ensure you are compliant by carrying out a Gap Analysis of your WHS Safety Management System. A comprehensive on-site gap analysis and review of WHS Management System will ensure gaps in compliance, regulations and standards aren’t overlooked. A gap analysis is a valuable first step in checking for compliance change standards such as ISO 45001:2018. This will help reduce risks to employees and the likelihood of prosecution or fines.
Through on-site reviews, our Altius Group consultants are able to assess the specific WHS needs of a business and provide advice on the support required. We can carry out audits of industry or workplace specific hazards such as use of chemicals, or checking traffic management systems.
As a scalable offering, we provide a Desktop Compliance Screening for due diligence, to guide your compliance needs and direct your investments in Workplace Health and Safety.
