Improve employee safety, reduce workplace incidents and create better safer working conditions

According to a report from the ILO (International Labour Organization), there are more than 2.78 million deaths and 374 million non-fatal injuries and illnesses per year as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases.

The ILO estimates that the annual cost to the global economy is 3.94% of global GDP (gross domestic product) per year.

Can your organisation afford to contribute to these statistics? Even if your staff work remotely, you still have an obligation to protect their health and safety.

How can ISO 45001 help?

ISO 45001 is the international standard for creating and maintaining an OHSMS (occupational health and safety management system). The Standard provides guidance and an effective set of processes for improving worker safety and is designed to help organisations of all sizes and anywhere in the world reduce workplace injuries and illnesses.

Creating and maintaining an OHSMS demonstrates employer due diligence and reasonable care, reduces workplace incidents, improves employee health, reduces absenteeism, increases productivity and creates a safer working environment for employees.
