Balloting Underway on Draft ISO 45001

ISO_HomepageISO members are now voting on draft ISO 45001, which sets requirements for an occupational health and safety management system (OHSMS). The standard is currently at the committee draft stage, which means ISO members now have 2 months to form a national position on the draft and comment on it.

In mid-March, ASSE participated in a congressional briefing on ISO 45001.

The Society believes such a standard will create a global foundation of worker safety standards that covers the entire global supply chain and helps organizations embrace efforts to reduce risk and protect employees. ASSE is administrator of the U.S. Technical Advisory Group that is responsible for drafting the U.S. position for ANSI. Read ASSE's most recent tech briefs on ISO 45001 here.
