ISO 45001:2018 (Previously OHSAS 18001) Health & Safety Systems

ISO 45001:2018 Registration / Certification.

ISO 45001:2018 is the current Health and Safety Standard for Ireland & the UK. ISO 45001:2018 specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, and gives guidance for its use, to enable organizations to provide safe and healthy workplaces by preventing work-related injury and ill health, as well as by proactively improving its OH&S performance.

What’s New in the International Standard?

With the new standard, you can ensure your health and safety management is aligned with the strategic directions of the organisation.
The key changes in the standard focus on:

  • Context of the organisation
  • Understanding the needs and expectations of the worker and other interested parties
  • Leadership , culture and commitment
  • Polices linked to overall strategic objectives and direction of the organisation
  • Participation and consultation
  • Risk and opportunities
  • Performance evaluation
  • Evaluation of compliance
  • Management review



ISO 45001:2018 is applicable to any organization that wishes to establish, implement and maintain an OH&S management system to improve occupational health and safety, eliminate hazards and minimize OH&S risks (including system deficiencies), take advantage of OH&S opportunities, and address OH&S management system nonconformities associated with its activities.

ISO 45001:2018 helps an organization to achieve the intended outcomes of its OH&S management system. Consistent with the organization’s OH&S policy, the intended outcomes of an OH&S management system include:

a) continual improvement of OH&S performance;

b) fulfilment of legal requirements and other requirements;

c) achievement of OH&S objectives.


The Audit Process

At CVI Certification we believe that the audit process should be about good communication between the client, Auditee, and the auditor.
Our Approach

Our approach to registration ensures that the auditor is at your facility for all of the important stages of the audit process.
Stage 1

The Stage 1 audit allows the auditor to understand your business and your OH&S hazards/issues, and to provide context when completing the audit of your system.
Stage 2

The Stage 2 audit allows the auditor (armed with knowledge of your business, its hazards/issues (from the Stage-1 audit) to establish the effectiveness of your system in meeting the requirements of applicable standard(s) and your stated objectives.

CVI Certification Certificate Issue is amongst the fastest in the registration industry; clients normally receive their ISO certificates within a week of successful completion of the Stage-2 audit.
