ISO 45001: The International Standard For Health And Safety Management Systems
The planned development milestones are as follows:
- ISO/CD 45001 (first committee draft) May 2014;
- ISO/DIS 45001 (first draft international standard) February 2015;
- ISO/FDIS 45001 (final draft international standard) March 2016;
- ISO45001 October 2016.
ISO 45001 will utilize the same common structure, definitions and core text being used for the present revisions of ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. This will ensure better compatibility and systems governance, making implementation within an organization smoother.
It is being developed by a technical committee named: "ISO/PC 283 Occupational health and safety management systems"
A didicated blog has been created to provide updates on the development of this standard. This can be viewed here: The ISO 45001 Standard
