Implementing OHSAS 18001 or waiting for ISO 45001

I am curious what your thoughts are whether it is worth investing time and expense to implement 18001 or wait for 45001 for facilities in the USA?

Answer:

At this point in time, I think it would be much better to wait for ISO 45001 and avoid implementing OHSAS 18001 simply because ISO 45001 will be published in couple of months and from that moment the transition period will start for organizations that have OHSAS 18001 to pass on ISO 45001.

If you start your OHSAS 18001 implementation now, you will probably finish it after the ISO 45001 is published and after certification you will have to start thinking about the transition. Waiting for couple of months will save you a lot effort and expense, unless you are forced by your customers to certify OHSAS 18001 as soon as possible.
