Getting ISO 45001 Certified in Minneapolis, Minnesota (MN)
ISO 45001 is an international standard-setting out the requirements for a management system for occupational health & safety (OHS). This offers an operational structure for assessing threats and resources to better avoid workplace accidents and injuries. While ISO 45001 is based on the old OHSAS 18001 model, several major variations still exist. To meet the new requirements, organizations will have to change fundamentally the way they think about safety and risk.
There are two significant parts of the standard that we would like to highlight. First, the new IS0 45001 standard calls for a safety commitment from the top down. In rendering the protection and wellbeing part of the organizational structure of a company, ISO 45001 makes C-suite managers responsible for the welfare of the employees.
Second, the model puts a greater focus on minimizing the risk. Like OHSAS 18001, which concentrated exclusively on monitoring identified hazards, ISO 45001 allows companies to follow a risk-based strategy in order to proactively classify causes or circumstances that may inflict damage. It’s part of a broader trend we’re seeing towards risk reduction being incorporated into any aspect of a company’s operations.

If I am new to ISO 45001 what do I need to know?
The solution depends on how much of an ISO management system you already know. ISO 45001 adopts Annex SL, thereby sharing a high-level framework (HLS), similar core language, terminology, and meanings with other recently updated ISO management system requirements, such as ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Control) and ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Protection). If you’re already comfortable with the standard structure, then you’ll consider most of ISO 45001 comfortable and you’ll only need to fill in the “gaps” in the system.
If that’s not the case, it might be a little trickier. When you read it as a regular novel, the quality standard isn’t simple to apprehend. You ought to know all the interconnections between the individual clauses. Our best recommendation will be to consider the suitable training that we provide, which will help you achieve the maximum value of the standard.
I have an optimized, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified framework. How can I adapt ISO 45001 to these other control systems?
ISO ‘s Common Framework for Management Systems was intentionally designed to promote the introduction of emerging management concepts into current management structures within an organization. For starters, ISO 45001 is focused relatively loosely on ISO 14001, because they are mindful that multiple organizations deal internally with their OH&S and environmental functions.
