Why comply to ISO 45001? The standard is intended to be applicable to any organisation regardless of its size, type and nature. All the requirements in the standard are intended to be integrated into the organisation’s management system and its business processes. The extent of the application will depend on factors such as the context in which the organisation operates and the requirements of its interested parties. Depending on an organisation’s determined scope for its OH&S management system, this International Standard requires the organisation to address the OH&S risks to persons working under its control (e.g. directors, other executives,managers, supervisors, workers and contractors). For some situations, the organisation may also choose, or be required by applicable legal requirements, to address:
a) the needs of other persons affected by the activities of the organisation, but who are not engaged in“occupational” activities for the organisation (such as some types of visitors or customers,neighbouring people or passers-by), through its OH&S management system.
