Answer:
ISO 45001:2018 is the newly released standard requirements for an occupational health & safety management system (OHSMS). As it comes from the international organization for standardization (ISO) is it internationally recognized as the best practices for implementing the OHSMS. Previously, companies may have used many different requirements documents to define what is needed for the OHSMS, such as OHSAS 18001:1999, but these were not recognized internationally like the ISO standard is. In fact, companies using OHSAS 18001 will need to transition over the next 3 years as this standard will be made obsolete.

The new standard has many of the same processes for an OHSMS that were previously present in other documents such as OHSAS 18001, such as the need to identify hazards, but also includes some new focuses. Some main focuses of the ISO 45001 standard are meeting compliance obligations, understanding the hazards in your organization, and encouraging worker participation and consultation along with the importance of leadership commitment.
