ISO Standard 45001 "Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems". Requirements and Guidance for Use” was published on 12 March, 2018.
This Standard comes with Annex A, which contains guidance for its interpretation to assist a practical transition to implementing it.
Currently, various national certification bodies are being accredited in ISO 45001. Some them are completing the accreditation process and others are waiting to receive the definitive accreditation, having already completed the process. Therefore, by the end of June, some of them will be able to begin the process for certifying companies in the ISO 45001.
In these cases, if the certified organisation wishes to convert its certificate to another one with the accreditation of ENAC, once its certification body obtains the accreditation, this body should assess if it will proceed to:
Below is an outline summary with the requirements of the ISO 45001 Standard.
The ISO Standard 45001 implements a cycle of continuous improvement. In order to be able to view the aforementioned cycle, a file is attached showing a diagram with the respective clauses of the standard (from 4 to 10), grouped together in relationship to the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) cycle.
The ISO 45001 Standard adds the requirement for a management system aligned with the High Level Structure (HLS) of the ISO standards for management systems, compatible with the PDCA model. This structure facilitates the integration of different Management System standards, providing a common framework for all of them and thus facilitating integration with the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 (in its 2015 version) standards, in order to increase added value and eliminate costs.
All future management system standards will have this reference structure, identical basic text and common terms and definitions. Sub-clauses and text specific to the discipline can be added to this structure, but the reference structure cannot be modified.
For more information, consult the attached HLS outline of ISO standards.
The ISO 45001 Standard automatically cancels the OHSAS 18001 Standard, which is why a migration process has been developed to assist those organisations already certified in the OHSAS 18001 to obtain the corresponding ISO 45001 certification.
Organisations that have a Health and Safety Management System (HSMS) certified in accordance with OHSAS 18001:2007 had 3 years to migrate to ISO 45001: 2018, specifically until March 2021.
Given the current health situation caused by COVID-19,International Accreditation Forum (IAF) has extended the migration period by 6 months, which can now be carried out until 30 September 2021.
The table below indicates the correspondence of the OHSAS 18001 standard requirements with those of the ISO 45001.
New requirements that do not have a correspondence with the OHSAS 18001 requirements are shown in a different colour.
The article Preventive Practice explains how organisations certified in OHSAS 18001:2007 can carry out the migration to ISO 45001:2018.

The ISO/PAS 45005 is a Guide that aims to provide guidance for managing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in companies.
PAS is the English acronym for a standard that complies with the Publicly Available Specification which, depending on the evolution of the pandemic and the new information available, allows it to be updated in its current form or developed into a formal standard.
UNE-ISO/PAS 45005 has been published in Spanish. Access the news story .
The ISO/PAS 45005 document index is shown in the following attached file
The outline of the content of the specification is attached below according to the PDCA cycle (Plan-Do-Check-Act).
FREMAP has translated the terms and definitions of the specification, as it is currently only available in English, so these may change once the official translation has been completed.
The table below shows the equivalences of the ISO 45001 with those of the UNE-ISO/PAS 45005.
