Developed by leading trade and international standards bodies, it provides a framework for organisations to instigate proper and effective management of health & safety in the workplace.

The standard enables us to put in place processes for continually reviewing and improving occupational health and safety.
Key areas that are assessed by the ISO45001 certification
- Management systems in place
- Planning and risk assessment
- Staff training and awareness
- Communication of safety management systems
- Response to emergency situations
- Monitoring and continual improvement
- Worker involvement
