Managing H&S obligations.
According to the HSE, there were 69,208 company-reported non-fatal workplace injuries to employees in Great Britain in 2018/19. The cost of occupational illness and accidents at work, in the same period, was calculated as £16.2billion!
Apart from the devastating impact on people, poor OHS management can have many negative effects on organisations - the loss of key employees, business interruption, claims, insurance premiums, regulatory action, reputational damage, loss of investors and, ultimately, the loss of business.
ISO45001 provides a clear framework in which to manage your regulatory and legal obligations. It requires that you review and communicate your legal obligations to your workforce and other interested parties and involve them in the development of your Occupational health and safety Management System (OHSMS).
