ISO45001 – Prevention, as we all know, is better than a cure

03 Oct 2022

What responsibilities do companies have to protect their employees? All employers have a duty of care to either, minimise exposure to, or provide employees with the skills and tools, to prevent exposure to risk.

As we know, prevention is the key to ensuring worker safety. And is obviously more effective (and less expensive) than treatment and rehabilitation. As such ISO 45001 takes on a risk-based approach to managing Occupational Health & Safety.

Businesses need to ensure they manage all their risks to survive and to thrive. OH&S is a key aspect, which every business must manage proactively. Apart from the devastating impact on people, poor OH&S management can have many negative effects on businesses, such as the loss of key employees, business interruption, claims, insurance premiums, regulatory action, damage to reputation, loss of investors and, ultimately, the loss of business.

The risk-based approach to managing OH&S contained in ISO 45001 advocates taking a preventative method to OH&S. This is in order to identify what activities and processes could harm those working on behalf of the company and others (people external to the business), and to meet any legal compliance requirements. Identifying the hazards at work is vital to eliminating and minimising those that pose a significant risk.
