"Occupational health deals with all aspects of health and safety in the workplace and has a strong focus on primary prevention of hazards", says World Health Organization."
Health and safety is obviously an important part of any business, regardless of how remote the risks may be as workplace injuries and accidents are awful for employees, terrible for morale and in serious cases, can spell the end of a business.The concern over occupational health and safety saw its light since the industrial revolution took place. In-order to avoid unforeseen injuries and fatalities, it has become a highly necessary factor fororganisations to implement suitable systems and standards to help lower the risk of workplace accidents. Demonstrating a rigorous approach to occupational health and safety is vital within today’s legislative environment. Although legal compliance to the raft of occupational health and safety legislation may be sufficient, businesses with a company-wide commitment to managing the health and safety of their staff stand out from the competition. With various degrees of risks associated with businesses of different nature, a systemic top-down health and safety initiative is highly required to avoid things not to be bound to go wrong at some point, no matter how careful the employees.
The bigger the business, the bigger the need for a dedicated health and safety management system like ISO 45001 that includes checks, redundancies and contingency planning.Therefore, to act in accordance with the legislation and to devise a system that ensures a safer environment in the workplace, there is an every need to initiate a management system to help reduce the risks of litigation, downtime and accidents. OHSMS(Occupational Health and Safety Management System) provides an example for managing OHS responsibilities efficiently and integrating it without a glitch into the business operations.So, not only do organisations need health and safety systems in place, but they also need some external benchmark to be compared with; some external standard to be followed and checked against periodically.
In general, Health and safety shouldn’t be of an one-time implementation rather, it should be of a continuously upheld standard within the company, and needs to be something that employees are constantly aware of and adhering to.It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that the risks to health & safety in the work place are properly assessed and managed so as to minimize the possibility of accident or incident to employees or others that might have access to the site. The ISO 45001 offers this.
ISO 45001 is an Internally recognizedOccupation Health and Safety Assessment sequence for Health and Safety Management System for an organization to get certified against.The standard ensures compliance with current legal requirements and is released with the aim to assist organizations in improve the efficiency of internal operations and reduce accidents in the work place.A Health & Safety Management System helps organizations by providing a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions, all over the world.The ISO 45001 certification implies responsibilities, authorities, relationships, functions, activities, processes, practices, procedures, and resources that are used to establish OH&S policies, plans, programs, and objectives for organisations concerned with occupational health and safety.With the objectives and responsibilities of an organization made clear, the company can demonstrate their commitment to improve the quality of the work environment.The ISO 45001 doesn’t concentrate only on pure compliance with legislative requirements, observation of the safety rules and assurance of property protection, but especially in identification and findings of risks and in prevention.
The key areas where the OHSAS addresses in an organization are:
The importance of effective occupational health & safety management is now recognised by employees, customers, suppliers, contractors, regulatory agencies, insurers, and stakeholders alike, and is increasingly becoming a primary concern to interested parties. However, to acquire ISO 45001:2018 Certification the applicant companies need to ensure that policies formulated by them are safe for their employees as well environment.
ISO 45001:2018 Certification is one of the most common certification that every organization having large work force wishes to obtain which is compatible with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 facilitating easy integration.In brief, the standard specifies an effective implementation that would help an organization to demonstrateits commitment to provide a safe working environment,which aims at reducing and preventing accidents and accident related loss of live, equipment, time and damage to environment.It exists to help all kinds of organizations put in place demonstrably sound occupational health and safety performance.
Traibcert certified ISO 45001 will help organisation to demonstrate towards its stakeholders commitment and a well implemented standard and can reap many of its benefits. It should be noted that an important legislative framework does not represent a comprehensive system access, but it is the minimum (mandatory) basis for its realization. In many ways, an independent audit against the requirements of the standard is the best way to demonstrate to your buyers, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders that you have fully and properly implemented the standards, and may help show how your organization meets regulatory or contractual requirements.The main reasons for an organization to implement the ISO 45001 are to:
An effective occupational health and safety management system promotes a safe and healthy working environment by providing a framework that allows an organisation to identify and control its health and safety risks, reduce the potential for accidents, aid legislative compliance and improve overall performance.Such integrated standardization approach allows certification bodies to provide organizations with Integrated Management System certification including all the three major standards for Quality, Environment, Health and Safety.
In some industries with sensitive processes and complex business systems, it only takes one or two consecutive small mistakes that might lead to a serious incident. In such cases, nothing less than consistently excellent health and safety performance is acceptable when it comes to ISO 45001. The standard is applicable to any organization from all types of business sectors and activities where it focuses on the management of Occupational Health and Safety and the continual improvements that the organization develops to provide stakeholders and others with assurances of conformance with its stated Occupational Health & Safety policy.This system is proven to enable a business to be pro-active rather then re-active when approaching health and safety, therefore more effectively protecting the health and welfare of your workforce on an on-going basis.
