Advancing OHS management by harnessing ISO 45001

This article was created in partnership with Avetta.

An international standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OHS) management system, ISO 45001 provides a framework for organizations to manage risks and improve OHS performance. Released in 2018, it establishes criteria for an OHS policy, objectives, planning, implementation, operation, auditing, and review and it is crucial to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of employees, as well as compliance with legal requirements and industry standards.

The question is, how does your organization stack up?

“Globally more than 380,000 organizations have been certified to the requirements, however only 400 are based in Canada,” says Dylan Short, Managing Director, The Redlands Group and Canadian Mirror Committee Expert. “While formally adopting a certification standard is not achievable for most organizations we can still learn from the advancements delivered in ISO 45001.”

Short will lead a free upcoming webinar that delves into how to tailor your safety program to the unique needs and challenges of your workplace, discusses effective strategies for identifying, assessing, and controlling OHS risks, and outlines how to set actionable objectives and develop a comprehensive plan to achieve and maintain a high standard of safety in your organization. The interactive discussion will also see Short share practical insights into the importance of regular management reviews and how to drive continual improvement in your safety program, while also sharing details on the upcoming revisions of the ISO 45001.

With more than 20 years of expertise as a business owner, Vice President Safety, Not-For-Profit Board Leader, and International Keynote Speaker, Short brings not only his deep knowledge of the industry but also a strong drive to pursue and achieve professional excellence for himself and for others. He brings that energy to Advancing your Workplace Safety Program, where he will strive to energize attendees to achieve their full potential.

“Each of the elements will be discussed in the context of how you can assess the opportunity to recommend steps to improvement in your organization’s program,” Short says. “Take this opportunity to stay ahead of the curve in safety management, elevate your safety program, and safeguard your most valuable asset — your people.”
