ISO has developed a new health and safety standard: ISO 45001- Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems – Requirements to help employers reduce workplace risks. ISO 45001 was published earlier this year. The standard follows the plan-do-check-act system as used by ISO 14001 – Environmental Management Systems and takes into account other national and international standards.  Come see how ISO 45001 can affect the way your business chooses to manage safety and health risks.
