The ISO 45001 Standard establishes the international requirements for a Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OH&S) including the following clauses:

Clause 4 - Context of the Organization (scope)
Clause 5 - Leadership (Executive Level Policy & Directive)
Clause 6 - Planning (Risk Assessment Process)
Clause 7 - Support (Training & Awareness, Control of Documents, etc)
Clause 8 - Operation (Policies, Processes & Procedures)
Clause 9 - Performance Evaluation (Monitor & Measure, Audit Program, Management Review
Clause 10 - Corrective Actions

The requirements of ISO 45001 are generic and are intended to be applicable to all organizations (or parts of an organization), regardless of type, size and nature of activity, and whether in the public, private or not-for-profit sectors.

ISO 45001 certification also known as "registration", is a 3rd party audit performed by a certification body (registrar) such as MSECB (iCertWorks) who, upon verification that an organization is in conformance with the auditable requirements of ISO 45001, will issue an ISO 45001 Certificate.  This certification is then maintained through regularly scheduled annual surveillance audits by the registrar, with re-certification performed on a three year audit cycle.

The ISO 45001 certification three year audit cycle includes:

  • Year 1 - Full Stage 1 & Stage 2 Audit
  • Year 2 - First Surveillance Audit (partial system audit)
  • Year 3 - Second Surveillance Audit (partial system audit)
  • Year 4 - 3 year Audit Cycle starts over (repeats)
