Peabody, MA - TÜV SÜD America Inc. is pleased to announce it has been granted accreditation to provide certification to the ISO 45001:2018 standard by the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB).
ISO 45001:2018 was published on March 12, 2018 and key changes include:
- ISO 45001 implements the ‘high Level structure’ (HLS), giving it a common framework with other management systems, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
- ISO 45001 places great emphasis on the responsibility of senior management. This aspect has already been implemented in the revised ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards.
- ISO 45001 explicitly includes persons who are not permanently employed, but are in other ways working under the responsibility of the organization/company, such as subcontractors, as well as processes that have been outsourced in their entirety.
- The standard also introduces the term “opportunities”, as a new aspect in the field of occupational health and safety. This covers issues that go beyond the mere elimination or minimization of occupational health and safety risks.
“TÜV SÜD America is pleased to obtain our ISO 45001:2018 accreditation. The true value of implementing ISO 45001 for our clients comes from linking the business strategy and the health and safety management system.” said Mark Alpert, Vice President, TÜV SÜD America Business Assurance. “With a focus on the involvement of leadership, users of the ISO 45001:2018 system should also expect reinforced leadership commitment to improve conditions even further in the future.
