ISO-14001:2015 Environment Management Systems (EMS)

ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System (EMS) is a systematic framework to manage the immediate and long term environmental impacts of an organization’s products, services and processes. ISO-14001:2015 is an international standard that specifies a process for controlling and improving a company’s environmental performance. ISO 14001:2015 provides guidance on how to manage the environmental aspects of the business activities more effectively, while taking into consideration environmental protection, pollution prevention and socioeconomic needs. These include the use of natural resources, handling and treatment of waste and energy consumption.

ISO-45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) Management Systems

ISO 45001:2018 – Occupational health and safety management systems – Requirements with guidance for use sets forth the framework for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system for establishing processes that minimize OH&S risks. A system formed under this guidance—finding success through active top leadership, effective communication, clearly identified objectives and processes, and evaluation for continual improvement—can help foster a safe workplace by reducing injury and ill health.

ISO 45001:2018 outlines requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, to enable an organization to control its OH&S risks and improve its performance. ISO-45001:2018 is a new International Standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, with guidance for its use, to enable an organization to proactively improve its OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill-health. ISO-45001:2018 is intended to be applicable to any organization regardless of its size, type and nature. ISO-45001:2018 enables an organization, through its OH&S management system, to integrate other aspects of health and safety, such as worker wellness/well-being; however, it should be noted that an organization can be required by applicable legal requirements to also address such issues.

Integrated ISO-14001:2015 (EMS) & ISO-45001:2018 (OH&S) Management Systems

ISO-45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems was intentionally developed to be compatible with the ISO-9001:2015 (QMS) and ISO-14001:2015 (EMS) management systems standards for easier integration of quality, environmental and occupational health & safety management systems by organizations.

Occupational health and safety management systems are used in conjunction with environmental management systems. This is because ISO 14001:2015 – Environmental management systems – Requirements with guidance for use and OHSAS-18001:2007, which has served as the primary framework for an occupational health and safety management system prior to the release of ISO-45001:2018, while varying greatly in purpose, are highly comparable in terms of primary elements like policies, objectives, and preventive action.

Sbp SigmaL offer courses and trainings that cover Integrated ISO-14001:2015 (EMS) & ISO-45001:2018 (OH&S) Management Systems which is focused on sustainability of organization.
