More than 370 million accidents occur on the job annually, and more than 2.78 million people die each year due to work-related activities.1

Commit to keeping your workforce safe.

ISO 45001 identifies occupational health exposures and safety hazards to minimize the risk of injury. Independent, third-party certification to ISO 45001 is a legal or contractual requirement for many sectors and industries.

A registered certificate establishes your company's credibility and demonstrates that your processes meet customer and consumer expectations. ISO 45001 replaces OHSAS 18001.

In addition to controlling hazards, this proactive, preventative initiative works with your existing management system to implement forward-thinking safety initiatives. It will help your company:

  • Foster a safe and healthy work environment
  • Minimize workplace-related injuries and illnesses
  • Meet OH&S legal and policy requirements

NSF-ISR is consistently ranked as one of the top accredited registrars for overall customer satisfaction. Whether you're applying for first-time certification, transferring your registration or integrating your management systems, our team of industry experts can help support your organization throughout the process.

ISO 45001:2018 Migration

OHSAS 18001 will be withdrawn in 2021, with certificates expiring on September 30, 2021. Current OHSAS 18001 clients will need to migrate to ISO 45001 to ensure continuity of their occupational health and safety management program to protect employee and public health.
