We are pleased to announce that Panorama Antennas has been granted accreditation by the BSI (British Standards Institution) for BS EN ISO 45001:2018 – the world’s first International Standard for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S), replacing the British Standard OHSAS 18001.
Panorama Antennas has successfully transitioned from OHSAS 18001 and Panorama’s Frogmore site, where its administrative and production premises are located, is now certified to ISO:45001:2018 for Occupational Health and Safety management.
ISO 45001, Occupational health and safety management systems – Requirements with guidance for use, is the world’s first International Standard for occupational health and safety (OH&S). It provides a framework to increase safety, reduce workplace risks and enhance health and well-being at work, enabling an organisation to proactively improve its OH&S performance.
How does ISO 45001 differ from other OH&S standards ?
ISO 45001 was developed with consideration of other related standards, such as OHSAS 18001, Occupational health and safety management, the International Labour Organisation’s ILO-OSH 2001 guidelines and various national standards, and is consistent with the ILO’s international labour standards and conventions. Developed under the ISO system, with the input of experts from more than 70 countries, it provides an international framework that takes into account the interaction between an organisation and its business environment. ISO 45001 adopts a risk-based approach that ensures it is effective and undergoes continual improvement to meet an organisation’s ever-changing context.
