ISO 45001: What it means for the oil and gas industry

August 21, 2017

The world’s first ISO standard for occupational health and safety (OHS) management systems, ISO 45001, is currently progressing through draft and review. If you're in the oil and gas industry and currently certified to OHSAS 18001 or AS/NZS 4801, you should be thinking about what migration to ISO 45001 means for your business.

 

As ISO 45001 nears publication, the world's first ISO standard for occupational health and safety (OHS) management systems is set to significantly impact oil and natural gas industry players. Companies currently certified to OHSAS 18001 or AS/NZS 4801 must understand the key changes and begin the process of preparing for ISO 45001 certification.

For inherently high-risk industries like oil and gas, this new standard is particularly significant. It has the potential to be a real game-changer, an opportunity to move forward in creating a safer and more prosperous industry.

In our whitepaper titled ISO 45001: What it means for the oil and gas industry, SAI Global experts outline what you should expect when migrating to ISO 45001, inherent benefits and challenges, and strategies to help you prepare for change.
