Workplaces across the globe still have a lot to do to provide safe and healthy working conditions. It is estimated that every 15 seconds a worker dies from a work-related accident or disease, and 153 people experience a work-related injury.
This is an enormous burden for organisations and society as a whole, with more than 2.78 million deaths a year, not to mention the more than 370 million non-fatal accidents.
If you’re concerned about health and safety in your workplace, you should take a look at my book: Establishing an occupational health & safety management system based on ISO 45001.
How does this book help?
This new book on ISO 45001 is intended to not just explain the new Standard, but also to help individuals and organisations in understanding and implementing its requirements.
There is a growing realisation that the wellbeing of employees ought to be the most important consideration and must be built into every aspect and task of an organisation.
The book helps the reader to take a system’s approach and meet all the requirements of the International Standard ISO 45001, in establishing their health and safety system.
The book provides considerable help by providing a large number of sample risk assessments, operational procedures, checklists, objectives, management reviews and OHS (occupational health and safety) surveillance programmes.
More complex topics such as HAZOP (hazard and operability study) are also covered. Behaviour based safety, measuring and monitoring plans and critical pressure equipment have also been addressed and included in the appendices.
Managers, OH&S auditors, trainers and OH&S professionals who are involved in any aspect of an OH&S management system, may it be development, documentation, implementation, training, supervision or auditing, will find it useful to frequently consult this book.
It follows a hands-on and step-by-step approach to building an OH&S management system, explaining the purpose and the requirements of each clause of ISO 45001, and goes on to describe how these requirements may be fulfilled by an organisation.
The guide also includes numerous examples, suggestions and sample formats to facilitate understanding and implementation of an OH&S management system, even by those individuals who may not have had any previous background of this subject.
