ISO 45001 FAQs

ISO 45001 FAQs

All of our ISO 45001 FAQs are listed below:

  • Is ISO 45001 a legal requirement?

    Many organisations are required to hold ISO 45001 certification from a UKAS-accredited body like Centre for Assessment. It is often a necessity to win contracts but also helps organisations do business better. It is typically popular in the construction sector but there are many, many ISO 45001 certified organisations of all sizes, and across all sectors.

  • Who needs/should get ISO 45001 certification?

    Any organisation that takes health & safety seriously should consider ISO 45001 certification. If your company needs to monitor and evaluate its health & safety systems, or simply if you believe it to be an important part of your operations, you should consider coming forward for audit.

  • How do you implement ISO 45001?

    The Standard booklet sets out the requirements of an Occupational Health & Safety Management System. You can chose to build this yourself, perhaps integrating it with your existing Quality or Environmental Management System, or enlist the help of a consultant. We have compiled a Directory of Consultants which are independent individuals and companies who may operate in your area, or within your industry sector.

  • What is the difference between OHSAS 18001 and ISO 45001?

    ISO 45001 has effectively replaced OHSAS 18001. It is the first international Standard for Occupational Health & Safety and is recognised as a robust, credible and effective Management System Standard.

  • How much does ISO 45001 cost?

    Certification costs vary widely from organisation to organisation. We take into account the number of locations and the number of staff as a starting point, but also factor in risk levels, your context and your activities. Talk to us about a no-obligation quotation for your organisation.
