Inquiries on Transition to ISO 45001

1. We are currently in the process of assessing our documentation in preparation for our transition to ISO 45001 from OHSAS 18001. What other documentation do we need to produce?

2. Are Risk and Opportunity associated with OH& S the same with Hazard and Risk?

1. We are currently in the process of assessing our documentation in preparation for our transition to ISO 45001 from OHSAS 18001. What other documentation do we need to produce?

If you are transitioning over from OHSAS 18001, much of the OHSMS is fully transferable, with only a few additions to the requirements such as consultation and participation of workers. As for documentation, there is not much additional documentation required by the new ISO standard.

For more on the documentation necessary or ISO 45001, see the whitepaper; Checklist of Mandatory Documentation Required by ISO 45001, https://info.advisera.com/45001academy/free-download/checklist-of-mandatory-documentation-required-by-iso-45001

2. Are Risk and Opportunity associated with OH&S the same with Hazard and Risk?

Risk and opportunity are not the same as OH&S hazards and risks. Risks and opportunities are considering he top level risks for the OHSMS, and are captured in clause 6.1.2.2 and 6.1.2.3, whereas, the OH&S hazards are in 6.1.2.1.

For more on the new risks and opportunities requirements, see the article; What are the new requirements for risks and opportunities according to ISO 45001?, https://advisera.com/45001academy/blog/2018/04/25/what-are-the-new-requirements-for-risks-and-opportunities-according-to-iso-45001/
