The reason that the context of the organization has been included in the ISO 45001 standard is to ensure that an organization thinks about the internal and external issues that can affect their OH&S processes, as well as understanding who the interested parties are for the OHSMS and what their additional needs and expectations are for OH&S management so that these can be included in the scope. These expectations will include business issues and risks that will need to be addressed to better prevent injury and ill health in the workplace. This is because an organization cannot simply meet the requirements of ISO 45001 for a management system, but need to also include legal and other requirements from interested parties within these processes.

You can read a bit more about context of the organization requirements in the article: Defining the context of the organization according to ISO 45001, https://advisera.com/45001academy/blog/2016/02/03/defining-the-context-of-the-organization-according-to-iso-45001/
