In the ISO 45001 OHSMS the internal context includes your internal issues that can affect your OH&S management system, along with the needs of employees and other internal interested parties. These internal issues can include such things as the stability of your workforce since a large employee turnover means that you will be re-training people all the time which can affect safety knowledge, and understanding employee needs for OH&S will help to identify where specific controls are needed to safeguard your specific employees for your specific hazards.

Implementing an OHSMS is more than just using the requirements of ISO 45001, you need to incorporate any other requirements that are applicable, such as legal requirements or employee safety needs. Understanding all of this context will help you to know the requirements that need to included on top of ISO 45001 to make your OHSMS work for your unique organization.

 

You can learn more on the context requirements for the OHSMS 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/
