Approval of second draft of ISO 45001
Another important step for the final release of the new international standard for Occupational Health and Safety (OHSAS) was taken:
On July 13 ended the balloting period for the second draft of ISO / DIS 45001.2: 2017. The results indicated that 57 votes of approval, seven votes of disapproval and eight abstentions had been submitted; consequently, the DIS has been approved by the ISO/PC 283. It seems that the modifications to earlier editions now meet most countries’ needs.
Nevertheless, more than 1.600 comments were received, which will now be reviewed by PC 283 at a meeting in Malaysia on 18 to 23 September. Following that review, the committee will know if it is able to avoid going through the FDIS stage and move directly to publication of the standard (potentially by the end of 2017), or whether an FDIS stage will be necessary (which would delay publication until 2018).
The objective of ISO 45001 OHS certification is to help organizations in designing and implement management system to prevent or reduce injury and ill health, regardless of size or industry. All of its requirements are designed to be integrated into an organization’s overall management processes, following the so-called ISO High Level Structure, already adopted by ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.
職安健管理體系國際標準 ISO 45001的第二個標準草案(DIS 2)通過
ISO 45001.2: 2017 第二個標準草案的投票期已於7月13日完結，投票結果為57票同意，7票反對，8票棄權，標準草案獲得ISO/PC 283委員會批準通過。結果反映早前的修訂現已滿足大部分國家的要求。
另外，由於PC 283委員會收到多達1600個意見，並在整理中，將於9月18至23日在馬來西亞的會議中討論。屆時，委員便知道能否略過最終草案階段 (FDIS) 以直接發布 ISO 45001 體系標準 (預計2017年底)，還是需要最終草案階段 (FDIS) (預計延遲發布 ISO 45001 體系標準至2018年)。
職安健管理體系國際標準 ISO 45001認證的目的是幫助組織，不論規模或行業，設計和運行管理體系以防止或減少傷害和健康問題。所有要求都根據ISO 9001:2015和ISO 14001:2015已經採用的高級結構，設計並融入於組織的整體管理過程。
