The ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) management system standard was published on Mar 12, 2018 to replace OHSAS 18001:2007. According to the original rule of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), the existing OHSAS 18001:2017 certifications have a 3-year migration period for ISO 45001 certifications, with original deadline as Mar 12, 2021.
In response to the challenges posed by CoViD-19, IAF has extended the migration deadline for 6 months to Sept 11, 2021. In addition, IAF now also allows 100% remote audit can be employed for the migration audit.
DQS Academy is providing professional public internal auditor and standard understanding training courses to facilitate clients to transition to the new standard. The internal auditor training course includes the structure of the primary local laws related to OHSMS.
