Borne out of a recognised need to both control and improve health and safety performance, in 1999 OHSAS 18001 set the bar for occupational health and safety management systems. Now, nearly twenty years later, its successor, the first  international standard for occupational health and safety, ISO 45001, is set to transform global work environments and practices.

Over the year since its publication, OHSAS 18001 has become more closely aligned with the fundamental biz ops standards at the heart of ISO management systems, such as ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 14001 (Environmental). So much so, that businesses are able to seamlessly adopt the Occupational Health and Safety protocol in tandem with existing management systems.

In March 2018, the International Organisation for Standardisation published their inaugural OH&S standard, ISO 45001, which is now set to replace OHSAS 18001. For many years, the consultant team at CG Business Consulting has been working with clients to ensure seamless implementation and full optimisation of the 18001 system. Today, we are delighted to be able to offer a full range of learning and consulting services wrapped around the new ISO workplace safety standard.
