The International Labor Organization (ILO) estimates that nearly 2.3 million women and men around the world succumb to work-related accidents or diseases every year and this corresponds to over 6000 deaths every single day. Worldwide, there are around 340 million occupational accidents and 160 million victims of work-related illnesses annually. The burden of occupational injuries and diseases is significant, both for employers and the wider economy, resulting in losses from early retirements, staff absence, and rising insurance premiums. OHSAS 18001 is the international Occupation Health and Safety, which is now replaced with ISO 45001:2018. The goal of ISO 45001 is the reduction of occupational injuries and diseases in the organization regardless of its size, type, and nature. An organization can eliminate hazards and minimize OH&S risks (including system deficiencies), take advantage of OH&S opportunities, and address OH&S management system nonconformities associated with its activities. A well-implemented occupational health and safety management system will help an organization to safeguard and enhance their most important asset & people, to drive business excellence into the new heights.
ISO 45001 is designed specifically to reduce work-related injuries,ill-health, and to provide a safe and healthy workplace. It helps in reducing the severity of risk in an otherwise dangerous situation for an organization where occupational hazards are inherent to the workplace of the employees. Key benefits of ISO 45001 can be summarized as:
