Health and occupational safety - the new ISO 45001:2018

8.2 Consulting AG advises and supports in the certification process

Health and physical integrity of employees is a cornerstone of a sustainable and high-performance organisation. Therefore 8.2 Consulting is actively involved in promoting the international implementation of the new occupational safety standard.

The new ISO 45001 has been in force since March 2018. It is the first international uniform standard for occupational health and safety management systems and will replace the previous BS OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series). It forms an excellent basis for strengthening occupational safety and reducing safety risks in the company and can be easily integrated into existing management systems according to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 due to its High Level Structure (HLS).

Companies already certified according to BS OHSAS 18001 have a three-year transition period within they must adapt their occupational safety management system to the new requirements. We recommend to familiarize with the details of the standard at an early stage to guarantee a smooth recertification. 8.2 Consulting is one of the first companies in the field of renewable energies to offer consulting services for certification according to ISO 45001. We support during the process of new certifications, delta determination and preparation for the conversion from BS OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001.
