New AS/NZS 45001:2018 OHS Standard Released


Earlier this month the new AS/NZS 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety standard was released by Standards Australia. After much anticipation, the ISO standard has now been published by Australia and New Zealand.

Standards Australia CEO, Dr Bronwyn Evans, recognised the contributions of Australia experts in this standard. They “contributed heavily to ISO 45001, working with their international colleagues to deliver a standard outlining international best practice in the management of workplace safety”

“The support this document has received from industry is indicative of the effort Australian organisations have already put into improving safety in their workplaces, which has the potential to be a simple and more effective process thanks to this international standard” said Dr Evans.
