Understanding SZNS ISO 45001: 2015 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OHSMS) – Requirements

4 out of 5

6 reviews

This training manual covers the requirements for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OH&S MS). The training material is based on the ISO DS 45001.

 ISO 45001 does not state specific criteria for OH&S performance, nor is it prescriptive about the design of an OH&S management system. An organization’s OH&S management system should be specific to meeting its own needs in preventing injuries and ill-health; consequently a small business with low risks may only need to implement a relatively simple system, whereas a large organization with high levels of risks may need something much more sophisticated.

Course Objectives

A student who successfully completes this course will be able to:

  1. Explain the requirements of OHSAS 18001:2007 standard
  2. Identify objective evidence needed to show the conformance and effectiveness of the entire OH&S Management System.
  3. Describe the difference between legal compliance and conformance with the OSHAS 18001.
  4. Evaluate an organisation’s effective implementation of procedures and methodologies to conform to OHSAS 18001.
  1.

  • OH&S policy, procedures, records showing the relevant legislation;
  • Hazard identification and risk assessment;
  • Objectives, targets and programmes for achieving continual improvement;

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electro technical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electro technical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.
