ISO 45003
What is ISO 45003?
ISO 45003 is a guidance framework, exploring how to recognise psychological hazards that can affect worker wellbeing, and actions that can be taken to manage them.

Supporting positive mental health within your organisation is more important than ever, with so many challenges to colleague resilience over the past two years.  Developed by leading workplace health experts across 74 countries and published as recently as June, 2021, ISO 45003 is written to help you embed support mechanisms for employees who are at risk of psychological harm.

It is written to complement and expand on ISO 45001, which contains requirements for an Occupational Health & Safety Management System.  As a 'child Standard' of ISO 45001, ISO 45003 is not a certifiable Standard in its own right.  Instead, it is designed to spread the responsibility for employees wellbeing across the whole of your organisation, with all your wellbeing initiatives coming together to protect your people from mental as well as physical hazards.

Is ISO 45003 Right for you?

The ISO 45003 framework is available to any organisation that wants guidance on how to support employee mental health and wellbeing.

You can access it for free here:

ISO 45003:2021(en), Occupational health and safety management — Psychological health and safety at work — Guidelines for managing psychosocial risks

It is intended to be used alongside ISO 45001 but you can implement the guidance even if you do not currently have an Occupational Health & Safety Management System in place.

How can Centre for Assessment help?

Centre for Assessment is delighted to work with ISO 45003.

Once you have implemented the requirements of the framework, we can provide you with a verification audit either as a stand-alone process or as part of your ISO 45001 certification audit.  This will confirm that you are fulfilling the requirements of the framework in terms of your commitment to managing psychological health & safety.

We can also provide training to help you embed ISO 45003 requirements into your organisation.
