Improve employee safety, reduce workplace incidents and create better, safer working conditions
According to a report from the ILO (International Labour Organization), there are more than 2.78 million deaths and 374 million non-fatal injuries and illnesses per year as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases. The ILO estimates that the annual cost to the global economy is $3 trillion (about ?2.36 trillion), and in the UK alone it?s estimated that 30.7 million working days were lost in 2017/2018 as a result of work-related illness and injury. Can your organisation afford to contribute to these statistics?
How can ISO 45001 help?
ISO 45001:2018, Occupational health and safety management systems ? Requirements with guidance for use, is the international standard for creating and maintaining an OHSMS (occupational health and safety management system). The Standard provides guidance and an effective set of processes for improving worker safety and is designed to help organisations of all sizes and anywhere in the world reduce workplace injuries and illnesses.
Creating and maintaining an OHSMS demonstrates employer due diligence and reasonable care, reduces workplace incidents, improves employee health, reduces absenteeism, increases productivity and creates a safer working environment for employees.
