Fire incidents are increasingly reported in the media and getting the attention and stricter enforcement from the authorities. It is best not to wait for a hefty fine, or an even heftier loss of reputation to do the right thing.
An investment in safety provides substantial returns in reduced accidents, better attendance, increased employee morale, compliance to legislation and most of all, your organisation’s good reputation & healthy bottom-line.
The internationally recognized OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health & Safety Management System standard is often used as a model to develop a system. It is in keeping with the Malaysian Occupational Safety & Health (OSH) Law, as well as exemplifies social consciousness and care.
An overview on how an Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) Management System based on the OHSAS 18001 Standard can be established and is a great starting point for those taking the first step.
ISO 45001 is intended for use by any organization, regardless of its size or the nature of its work, and can be integrated into other management systems. It can assist an organization to fulfill its applicable local, national and international safety & health related legal requirements.
The drafts will be available to public once it reaches the public enquiry (DIS) stage and Final Draft (FDIS) stage. See the table for more information (source from ISO.Org.)
Stay tuned for further updates about the standard's progress!
