The ISO 45001 draft, international standard for occupational safety and health management systems, is likely to go to the FDIS status by November 30, 2017 and the final release to be launched in March 2018.
The working group that is part of ISO/PC 283 – the project committee developing the new standard – met from the 18th to the 23th September in the Malaysian city of Malacca. At this meeting, ISO/DIS 45001.2: 2017 was subject to a ballot, with a positive result.
ISO 45001 is expected to replace the British Standard OHSAS 18001. A three-year transition period is anticipated after publication of the final standard. ISO 45001 will join a suite of harmonized standards for management systems, including ISO 14001 for environmental management and ISO 9001 for quality systems.
