Content: The seminar highlights the implications and importance of the new ISO 45001 standard in tackling global health and safety failures, outlining the history of occupational health and safety management systems (OHSMS); the role of international standards; the ISO standards process; progress on ISO 45001; and the aims for OSH management worldwide. The speaker discusses the proposed content of ISO 45001, its similarities and differences to OHSAS 18001, and the implications for organisations adopting the new standard and for those health and safety professionals assisting them. Challenges and opportunities for standardisation and the future integration of management system standards through the use of mechanisms such as the 'high-level structure', supported by topic-specific details, are also examined, together with the hoped-for outcomes.
