Introduction to ISO 45001 Support

Through successful implementation of ISO 45001, your organization can reap many benefits from the first truly international standard for Occupational Health and Safety. Your organization could realize lower insurance premiums, a reduction in number of incidents, better employee retention and much more. However, implementation of an ISO 45001 compliant Occupational Health and Safety management system requires a significant investment of time and resources.  In the highly competitive global market, companies are constantly looking for ways to reduce cost. This often results in fewer available resources for special projects. Some organizations may simply not have adequate resources or experienced subject matter experts available to properly develop, implement and maintain an effective ISO 45001 compliant OH&S management system.

Quality-One can provide the support your organization requires for the development, implementation and maintenance of your OH&S management system to ensure immediate and long-term success. We will assess your current system, design a plan for migration to the new standard and support the development and implementation of your ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety management system. Our Management Systems Support Services have a proven record of accomplishment for providing value as measured by reduced development and implementation time, effective health and safety risk identification, assessment and identification of opportunities for improvement.  Our subject matter experts utilize best practices from multiple industries to provide a custom fit solution for each of our customers.

About ISO 45001 Auditing

A 2nd Party Audit is an external audit performed at your facility by a representative from an outside consulting firm such as Quality-One.  Our ISO 45001 Auditing services are available for organizations that lack the proper resources and time to conduct their own internal health and safety audits. Our auditors are able to review your processes objectively and provide a fresh perspective. Quality-One will provide your organization with qualified 2nd party audit resources. Our audit services are useful in:

  • Fulfilling requirements of the ISO 45001 requirements for Internal Audits
  • Pre-certification audits to identify possible non-conformances to aid in first time certification
  • Familiarizing your personnel responsible for system audits to a structured audit process

About ISO 45001 Facilitation

The time required to design, develop and implement a new Occupational Health and Safety Management System can be greatly reduced with the aid of a skilled facilitator. At Quality-One our OH&S Management System Facilitation methodology can help you build an efficient yet robust, compliant ISO 45001 management system while helping your organization avoid common pitfalls often experienced when implementing an entirely new or greatly revised system.

Management System development and implementation without facilitation often leads to waste in the forms of:

  • Ineffective and inefficient hazard identification and risk analysis processes
  • Poor engagement of workers in the process
  • Redundant operations and documentation
  • Excessive non-conformances causing time and resource consuming corrective actions
  • Objectives that are not well defined or lack proper planning to achieve them
  • Possible missed opportunities for improvement of the processes or the management system
  • Disruptions to business due to time lost to complete day-to-day responsibilities
  • Ineffective communication process regarding the OH&S management system requirements and possible changes throughout the organization
  • Poor application of the PDCA methodology inherent in the new standard
  • Delayed project deadlines and failure to achieve 3rd party certification within project timeline

Most organizations fail to comprehend the total cost and time impact of an inadequately planned and implemented OH&S Management System. Most organizations do not have an in-house subject matter expert to lead such a daunting endeavor. Therefore, it is imperative that you consider involving a professional facilitator to lead your team to success.

Benefits of ISO 45001 Facilitation
