How can ISO 45001 Consultancy Services help a business?

A well designed Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) provides a framework with which to manage health and safety in the workplace in an organised and structured way.

ISO 45001 (previously OHSAS 18001:2007) is the world’s leading health and safety international standard and it outlines the requirements for designing and maintaining a suitably effective OH&S Management System.

Certification to ISO 45001 demonstrates to your customers, suppliers and employees that your business manages its health and safety performance in a consistent and progressive manner, continually improving on its activities with the health and safety of its workforce always in mind.

Bywater provides a range of ISO 45001 Consultancy and Training Services to organisations across the globe, with services including:

ISO 45001 and ISO 45001 Gap Analysis

We can assess your current Health and Safety processes, procedures and documentation and benchmark these against good practice and your aspirations. Through providing objective, impartial advice we can help you decide on your OHSMS goals and the steps you need to take to reach them. This may or may not require certification to ISO 45001 and may involve integration with your Quality or Environmental Management Systems.

ISO 45001 Management System Design and Implementation

Bywater can assist in all aspects of the design and implementation of your OHSMS by:

  • Aligning your OHSMS objectives with those of your organisation
  • Selecting and up-skilling personnel to lead OHSMS implementation
  • Identification and documentation of your Health and Safety procedures into a Health and Safety Manual
  • Identification of the appropriate certification body for your organisation
  • Development of your OHSMS certification body submission documentation (e.g. ISO 45001)
  • Advising on the softer aspects of OHSAS implementation to ensure effective stakeholder buy-in

Our consultants can either conduct these tasks on your behalf, or provide you with the necessary guidance and support to deliver and implement a robust system.
