ISO 45001 Conversion

We can take you through the process of migrating from OHSAS 18001. 

ISO 45001 is replacing the OHSAS 18001 certification as the new international standard for the management of occupational health and safety. Taking a more strategic view, ISO 45001 follows the structured format of all ISO standards and uses a predictable and tested framework.

Organisations transitioning from OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001 have until March 2021 to implement the new standards.

ISO 45001 focuses on the same core issue as OHSAS 18001, which is to reduce occupational injuries and make your organisation a safe and secure place for your employees to work. Like other ISO standards, ISO 45001 uses a structured framework to integrate policies, processes and controls. Implementing this framework is extremely beneficial, even if you don’t wish to obtain certification.


OHSAS18001 Certification can now be extended by up to six months as per the IAF FAQs relating to Covid-19. The implication of this is that now the migration to ISO45001 from OHSAS 18001 is now extended to 11th September 2021.

How we help

Because our consultants have completed the same qualifications as ISO auditors, we know exactly how to apply the framework to your business. We start by carrying out a gap analysis, looking at which aspects of your system need adapting, and planning the cost, time and resource required to implement the new framework and processes. We then manage the change and ensure that the new systems are implemented effectively, preparing you for assessment, and enabling you to successfully gain certification.
