ISO 45001 replaces OHSAS 18001
The International Labour Organization (ILO) revealed in 2014 that every year 2.34 million people throughout the world lose their lives due to accidents at the workplace. The new ISO 45001:2018 standard was published on 12 March 2018 and applies internationally. It replaces BS OHSAS 18001:2007, which will be withdrawn by the British Standards Institute (BSI). Consistent use of ISO 45001 is intended to achieve continual improvement of occupational health and safety throughout the world.
