OH&S Management System Certification
Demonstrate your commitment to create better and safer working conditions.
Secure employees’ safety and reduce workplace OH&S risks
People still die from work-related accidents or diseases every single day. Moreover, the importance of addressing worker’s psychosocial well-being has been rising on corporate agendas during the pandemic. To secure employees’ safety and reduce workplace risks is increasingly central to ensure a healthy company.
ISO 45001 is an international standard on occupational health and safety (OH&S), setting forth requirements to build a sound management system. When combined with the ISO 45003 guideline on psychosocial health and safety, companies can reduce workplace risks and create safer, healthier working conditions considering all aspects. In addition, ISO 45001 supports companies in ensuring compliance and meet legal obligations.
Benefits of becoming certified
In many countries, an occupational health and safety management system is a legal requirement and companies must report on performance. Certification to ISO 45001 by an independent party like WECERT proves you have a legally compliant system in place and it drives progress.
ISO 45001 certification enables your organization to:
- Establish and continually improve an OH&S management system to eliminate or minimize risk to personnel and other interested parties exposed to hazards associated with your activities or services.
- Work systematically to improve your occupational health and safety performance and prevent (re)occurrence of accidents and incidents.
- Assure its conformance with stated OH&S policy and demonstrate conformance to others.
- Continually comply with applicable OH&S legal requirements.
Improved Risk management
Identify potential incidents and implement controls and measures to keep risk as low as possible, protecting employees and customers from harm.
Reduced operating costs
Less down-time due to incidents and ill health and lower costs from legal fees and compensation means money saved.
Improved stakeholder relationships
Make the health and property of staff, customers and suppliers more of a priority and people will respond.
Understand how statutory and regulatory requirements impact your organization and its customers.
What is ISO 45001 ?
SO 45001 is the world’s international standard for occupational health and safety, issued to protect employees and visitors from work-related accidents and diseases. ISO 45001 certification was developed to mitigate any factors that can cause employees and businesses irreparable harm. Its standards are the result of great effort by a committee of health and safety management experts who looked closely at a number of other approaches to system management — including ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
Complete a Quote Request Form so that we can understand your company and requirements. You can do this by completing either the online quick quote or the online formal quote request form. We will use this information to accurately define your scope of assessment and provide you with a proposal for certification.
Once you’ve agreed your proposal, we will contact you to book your assessment with an WECERT Assessor. This assessment consists of two mandatory visits that form the Initial Certification Audit. Please note that you must be able to demonstrate that your management system has been fully operational for a minimum of three months and has been subject to a management review and full cycle of internal audits.
Following a successful two stage audit, a certification decision is made and if positive, then certification to the required standard is issued by WECERT. You will receive both a hard and soft copy of the certificate. Certification is valid for three years and is maintained through a programme of annual surveillance audits and a three yearly recertification audit.
