The acceptance of ISO 45001 is a historical moment for occupational health and safety management systems (OHSMS). This first of its kind global standards will make available organizations with a framework to prevent work-related injuries and fatalities, leading to safer and healthier workplaces.

You will also gain a competitive advantage by improving your brand’s reputation and growing your capacity.
