ISO 45001, clause 6 wants you to identify top level risks and opportunities for the OHSMS, such as the risk of a supplier going out of business that supplies the least hazardous cleaning chemical, or the opportunity of a supplier developing a safer cleaning chemical that you can use. It goes beyond the risks associated with the hazards of your processes. The clause requires you to keep information on what the risks and opportunities are, as well as the processes you have identified to determine the risks and opportunities, as well as the actions you need to address the risks and opportunities (where you have chosen to do so). The idea of this documentation is so that you can later compare your results to know if the plans you had were carried out, both in how you determined the risks and opportunities and how you dealt with them.

You can learn more about the standard requirements in 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/
