ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OH&SMS) standard provides a framework for managing OH&S risks and opportunities within an organisation.

With over 35 years’ experience, Bywater has helped thousands of organisations to implement their management systems. We have expert OH&S ISO 45001 consultants across the country capable of finding cost effective solutions to help businesses with the application, maintenance and improvement of their OH&S management system.

ISO 45001:2018 is an internally recognised management standard which ‘specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system’. With a focus on continual improvement, the standard encourages organisations to provide a safe and healthy workplace, reducing work-related injury and ill health by eliminating hazards and minimising OH&S risks.

Organisations of all sizes can implement an OH&S management system to proactively reduce hazards and risks within the workplace. The standard can be implemented alone or alongside other standards including ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 as an Integrated Management System (IMS).

Designed to help organisations reduce risks and hazards within the workplace, implementing ISO 45001 has various benefits including:

  • reducing workplace accidents and decreasing insurance premiums
  • helping to meet legal and regulatory compliance
  • demonstrating commitment to OH&S and the wellbeing of employees
  • improving brand image, gaining an advantage in winning new customers and retaining existing relationships
  • increasing employee satisfaction

In addition to providing remote and on-site ISO 45001 consultancy services and ISO 45001 training courses, Bywater offers various training courses to equip delegates with the knowledge and skills to improve the OH&SMS including:

Lean Six Sigma Training – This is a combination of two process improvement approaches, Lean which focuses on reducing waste, and Six Sigma which aims to reduce process variation

Root Cause Analysis Training – This course teaches delegates to apply tools and techniques to investigate the root causes of problems or failures and evaluate solutions to prevent chronic and recurring problems

Leadership and Management Training – Our range of leadership and management training courses equip delegates with the skills to influence and implement change effectively

How we can help

ISO 45001 Consultants undertake ISO 45001 Gap Analysis

ISO 45001 Gap Analysis

A gap analysis is used to understand what changes to the existing OH&S system are necessary to achieve ISO 45001 certification.

We will provide a written report highlighting where your system does not meet the requirements of ISO 45001 and any opportunities for improvement. The findings can be used to form an ISO 45001 implementation plan.
