Health and safety management system standard changes to ISO 45001

Added: 16th May 2017

BS OHSAS 18001:2007 the British Standard for a occupational health and safety management system is currently the subject of change.  The standard is to become international standard ISO 45001.  A statement from BSI regarding this standard reads as follows:

"We envisage the next stages of the development of ISO 45001 to be:

  • There will now be a four month period to allow for translations and a ballot to be held
  • From 19 May the draft standard will be available for review at no cost (clause by clause) on BSI’s online draft review system
  • The results of the ballot will determine the next stage. Publication could now be as early as November 2017 (if no FDIS is required), and as late as Q2 2018 if an FDIS is required"

As with other ISO standard changes the compliance period will be three years at which point Companies currently UKAS third party certified to BS OHSAS 18001:2007 will need to have changed over to the new standard. The changes are very much in line with BS EN ISO 9001:2015 and BS EN ISO 14001:2015.  The changes to all these ISO standards are now based on Annex SL which provides a common model around which management systems can be structured. 

This will be of particular interest to companies wishing to develop fully integrated management systems in view of the fact that Annex SL provides a common approach on which these systems can be based.  

Senisol have a number of existing clients who are certified to BS OHSAS 18001:2007 and we will continue to update them regarding the changes.  We will also update our news page as and when announcements are made regarding the status of ISO 45001.

Petrochemical management system standard to be updated

Added: 9th August 2016

BSI have stated that ISO/TS 29001:2010, which is the petrochemical industry management system standard, is planned to be updated in line with the other ISO standards, however, the update has yet to be finalised and the expectation is that a plan from the appropriate committee is due by end / mid-September.  It is therefore anticipated that changes to ISO/TS 29001, to bring it in line with the other ISO standards, will not happen for sometime yet. 

Sensiol are working with existing clients who are certified to ISO/TS 29001 to keep them up to date with the situation regarding this standard.  We will update our web site news page as and when changes are announced.
