ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety management systems (OH&S)

ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety management systems (OH&S)

ISO 45001 is the successor to the OHSAS 18001. The standard is international and concerns occupational health and safety. With ISO 45001 certification, your organisation continuously improves the working conditions and safety of your employees.

Why ISO 45001 certification?

The safety and health of employees is an important point of attention within every company. However, fatal accidents at work still occur regularly every year, people become incapacitated for work and countless people have work-related health problems. With the help of an ISO 45001 certification, you are constantly working on improving a safety culture and good working conditions.

An ISO 45001 certification offers the following advantages:

  • Safer and healthier working environment
  • Reduced absenteeism and less chance of accidents at work
  • Complying with laws and regulations
  • Realising your safety and health objectives
  • Positive image to your stakeholders

What does our ISO 45001 certification process look like?

We have worked out the process step by step for you in our brochure “The Certification Process”. This will provide you with insight into our working method. For further explanation, we would like to schedule a personal conversation with you. Please feel free to contact us obligation-free.  

Advantages of an ISO 45001 certification process at Bureau Veritas:

A single fixed point of contact

Within the certification departments of our Benelux organisation, we ensure that you always have a single fixed point of contact. Your contact person arranges, among other things, the planning, certificate issue, coordination, any changes, quotations and more for you. As a result, the lines remain short and clear, so that our communication and cooperation is effective and efficient.

Availability of auditors in Benelux

We have local offices in Belgium and the Netherlands and work with a large pool of auditors, both worldwide and within the Benelux. With this broad pool of qualified auditors, we effectively select a suitable auditor for you, who is known in your industry and also fits your company culture.

International network

Our global organisation makes it possible to visit your locations with local auditors all over the world. Depending on your wishes, we can offer several options in order to achieve a complete and desired execution together. 

Many international organisations have experienced that collaboration with Bureau Veritas brings a lot of benefit. In particular, the cost savings and the increase in quality benefit from this. This is because travel time and costs are limited, and we are familiar with the local market and language.

Certainty of accreditation

Bureau Veritas values trust and the quality of certification. We always strive to carry out your certification under accreditation. ISO 45001 can be offered under Belac (BE-022/BE-V-0022), RvA accreditation (C165/C248) or UKAS (0008) accreditation.
