ISO 45001 certification provides organisations with the foundation for an effective health and safety management system.
The implementation of an health and safety management system allows organisations to:
BS OHSAS 18001 and ISO 45001 management systems can be integrated with leading corporate management systems, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, as well as the Organisation and Control Management Model (Italian Legislative Decree No. 231/2001) if one is adopted by the organisation.
Businesses that do not yet have a health and safety management system can benefit from a stand-alone, independent service to measure what is still missing to achieve compliance with the choosen standard requirements and obtain related certification.
The new edition of the standard, called ISO 45001:2018, provides companies with a transition period that will end on September 2021.
By virtue of its accreditation, RINA is an internationally acknowledged body for the certification of occupational safety, which we issue to organisations operating in the most diverse sectors and industries.
