HEALTH AND SAFETY

ISO 45001 occupational health and safety (OHS) systems, sometimes known as workplace health and safety (WHS) systems, are the systems put in place by an organisation to make a job or workplace safer for employees, visitors and other occupants.

Hazard Prevention

The focus of these systems is hazard prevention. Identifying potential sources of injury in a certain role or workplace, and putting in place processes, procedures and physical safety improvements to lower the risk of injury.

Better Safety Better Productivity

From a productivity perspective, lowering the incidence of injury to employees pays dividends, through lowering the amount of lost time in sick leave and due to injury.

Avoid Legal Trouble

Health and safety in the workplace is also highly regulated in the UK and organisations can face heavy sanctions where they are found to have inadequate systems in place to protect worker safety. Additionally the quality of an organisation’s OHS system will be taken into account when assessing liability in the event that someone is injured in the workplace. If the system is inadequate, this may lead to the organisation being found liable and being required to pay significant compensation or face other penalties.

ISO 9001 systems are also valuable for a variety of other reasons, from the more existential like saving the planet, to the more immediate like meeting eligibility criteria for certain tenders or gaining a marketing benefit.
