Occupational Health and Safety has become one of the most pivotal elements of a successful organisation since the 2020 COVID-19 outbreak. Although the worst is behind us, the fact is that this virus, along with a selection of new viruses, are still a threat to a healthy work environment. As a result, the implementation of a professional Safety, Health, and Environmental management system, can make a drastic difference in your organisation and deliver more effective ways of approaching and managing these key elements throughout business processes. Today, we talk about the various ISO Standards that cover these elements and how your organisation can benefit from implementing their corresponding ISO Management Systems.
The ISO 45001:2018 Standard – Occupational Health and Safety
The ISO 45001:2018 Standard delivers a framework for an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) that can assist businesses to identify specific actions within each business process and document potential hazards by utilising a risk framework to determine inherent controls to create a safer work environment. This also includes the creation of a mitigation/treatment plan to minimise risks and workplace injuries for your employees within their specific work environment. The ISO 45001:2018 Standard can also be integrated with the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 Standards.
The ISO 14001:2015 Standard – Environmental Management
The ISO 14001:2015 Standard assists businesses to develop and implement an Environmental Management System (EMS) that aims to reduce their direct and immediate environmental footprint and impact. The purpose of an EMS is to adopt an Environmental Lifecycle Approach to manage every business process and activity through an identification process of various environmental aspects and impacts. Aligned with a risk methodology, this assessment process measures the efficiency of current controls and aims to align any inherent risk elements with legal or strategic requirements.
