Are companies prepared for ISO 45001?

DNV GL’s ViewPoint Espresso Surveys have set out to understand companies’ readiness in specific areas where there are changes in the new ISO standards. The surveys indicate that many are taking action already, but not unexpectedly, there are great variations. Most have gaps that must be closed before migrating. Here’s a peak into what current OHSAS 18001 certified companies say:

  • 5.1: Leadership and commitment – This new clause requires top management to demonstrate leadership and commitment to the company’s management system. In our survey, 39% say that they are compliant, while 46% are somewhat compliant. Only 4% indicate that they have no/very low level of compliance.
  • 7.4: Communication – This clause requires the organization to determine the internal and external communications relevant to the company’s management system, including what, when, how, with whom and who will communicate. 21% say that they are compliant, 51 are somewhat compliant, while 11% have no/very low level of compliance.
