  • Win and retain business.

Benefits of certification

The process

It's quick and easy to achieve your ISO certification and start winning new business.

  • Preparation

    Your dedicated Auditor will be in touch to go through the audit plan in preparation for your Stage 1 assessment.

  • Stage 1 assessment

    There’s no pressure for the first assessment; many are surprised what they already have in place following this visit. The report issued will highlight the next steps you need to take to achieve your certification.

  • Stage 2 assessment

    When you’re ready, your Auditor will visit again to establish if your management systems and processes meet the requirements of the standard. You'll be advised of the Auditor's recommendations on the day which will be ratified by our Compliance department, and your certification will be issued following the decision.

  • Annual assessment

    The excellent reputation of ISO 45001 is driven by its requirement for ongoing improvement, so we'll keep in touch and arrange annual assessments to keep your certification up-to-date.

What is the difference between OHSAS 18001 and ISO 45001?

ISO 45001 has been designed as an internationally recognised replacement for OHSAS 18001 certification. Organisations who currently hold OHAS 18001 certification have until 11th March 2021 to complete a successful migration to ISO 45001:2018.

There are many differences between the two standards. The main change is that ISO 45001 takes a more proactive attitude to identifying and evaluating risks, whereas OHSAS 18001 is only focused on controlling OH&S hazards and other internal issues.

How do I migrate from OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001?

Our migration process is quick and easy. Find about more about migrating from OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001 here.

How can ISO 45001 improve your business?

If your employees feel safe on the job, you will see improved productivity and trust throughout your organisation. Responsible practises are also more important to your brand and reputation than ever before. ISO 45001 helps reduce the risk of accidents, claims and costs — improving profits and keeping your workforce safe. The accreditation also:

  • Demonstrates health and safety credentials
  • Highlights a caring and compliant organisation
  • Saves costs from public liability premiums
  • Increases government contract opportunities.

What are the benefits of completing multiple certifications at the same time?

1. Improve efficiency

There is one management system. If you’re implementing one standard, the process of the second is more streamlined.

2. Reduce time on site

The information for each standard can overlap. Your Auditor can review duplicate processes, reducing time spent with your organisation.

3. Keep costs down

It can be more cost effective to integrate a second certification at the same time because of the commonality across the standards.

How much does ISO 45001 cost?
