  3. Businesses start conforming to new ISO 45001 standard

 

Many companies are already at the required ISO 45001 standard, a year ahead of the March 2021 implementation deadline.


In 2018, the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) issued specifications for 45001 standard. Businesses were afforded a three-year transition period to reach this standard.


The aim of ISO 45001 is to create an internationally recognised safe working environment standard. One of the first UK businesses to reach the standard is Russell Roof Tiles, whose business support manager, Daniel Hancox, said to BuildersMerchantsNews.co.uk:


“The latest ISO 45001 certification recognises Russell Roof Tiles’ dedication to achieving the highest level of health and safety standards. The team were instrumental in going the extra mile to achieving these and should be commended in their efforts to secure the ISO accreditation ahead of time.”


Russell Roof Tiles has implemented new safety protocols and measures that improve health and safety for both its office workers and production staff.


The ISO is an independent agency that develops international standards and says that worldwide, over 2.78 million people die each year from work-related illness and injuries. The ISO 45001 standard was developed by several occupational health and safety experts. It covers the use of PPE (personal protection equipment), training, risk assessment and many other ways to improve health and safety.


The ISO 45001 standard is not compulsory for British companies, but it is a useful structured framework to improve health and safety in the workplace and can help secure international contracts.
