Key changes - ISO 45001 vs OHSAS 18001

In terms of its new requirements for 'context' and 'interested parties', it's likely that you will already be considering these aspects in terms of H&S, when considering quality and environment.

The key changes in ISO 45001 are the following sections, which will sit under section 8.1.3 of the current EHQMS manual:

8.1.2 Hierarchy of controls
8.2 Management of change
8.3 Outsourcing
8.4 Procurement
8.5 Contractors

The OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001 gap guide summarizes the changes between 18001 and 45001.

As you can see, the new standard has been mostly reshuffled with minor changes in terminology.

Should I wait for ISO 45001?

No if you are ready to gain certification for the first time DO NOT WAIT! There are significant benefits to be realized by your business now.

We recommend you start and go through the process for certification with OHSAS 18001 now, gain certification and then make the transition to ISO 45001 at a later date. Do not wait.
