Did you know that 2.78 million fatalities occur in workplaces around the world each year? Keep your company from becoming part of a statistic and reduce your work related fatalities and injuries; learn about the new ISO 45001, released in March 2018.

By embarking on the adoption of ISO 45001, an occupational health and safety management system, you can begin to transform workplace processes that can often lead to work-related tragedies and injuries. This new standard builds on the OHSAS 18001 framework, while integrating health and safety responsibilities into the management of an organization. The new standard also focuses on risk management, which will help organizations become more proactive in ensuring safe work environments and earn the reputation as a “safe place to work”, leading to reduced injuries and increased productivity.

"The newly released ISO 45001 standard creates a company-wide focus on employee safety and health. It calls for the organization's management and leadership to integrate responsibility for health and safety issues as part of the organization's overall plan. By using a simple plan-do-check-act (PDCA) model, which provides a framework for organizations to plan what they need to put in place in order to minimize the risk of injury or illness, ISO 45001 enables an organization, through its OH&S management system, to integrate other aspects of health and safety, such as worker wellness/well-being. Healthier employees can increase productivity and reduce turnover and positively impact the bottom line." - Jeff Pacheco, CEO (Falcon Safety Group)
