BS OHSAS 18001:2007 will be competing with ISO 45001:2018. It is clear that BS OHSAS 18001 will continue for three years after the launch of ISO 45001:2018
We are all in unison when we engage in an Occupational Health and Safety management system; as we strive for no incidents. However, sometimes organizations do not report near misses due to misconceptions: near misses are classified as incidents by the standard.
We are all human and human do err. It is imperative that we are open to lessons that improve behaviour and control measures, to decrease or may be, eradicate the hazard.
The new Standard ISO 45001:2018 launched in March 2018, has very interesting concepts to be considered under compliance obligations. The new standard can now be implemented and integrated to ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 of 2015.
