Providing a safety culture is critical to implementing ISO 45001, and the crucial step is in the example of top management. There is a saying that “management leads whether they mean to or not”, and this is equally important to a safety culture. If there is a rule that safety glasses need to be worn, but the president of the company never wears them in the area, then this tells people that the safety rules are not important; if top management tries to say safety is important in words, but not in actions, they the culture of safety will not happen. A culture of safety will only occur when the rules are known, understood, and equally applied to everyone; then you can work on maintaining and improving safety.

You can find out more about convincing top management about the OHSMS that are still applicable to ISO 45001 in the article: 4 crucial techniques for convincing your top management to implement OHSAS 18001, https://advisera.com/45001academy/blog/2017/08/30/4-crucial-techniques-for-convincing-your-top-management-to-implement-ohsas-18001/
