ISO 45001:2018

Certification of occupational health and safety


Health and safety at work is an important issue in any corporate culture which is geared to sustainable success. ISO 45001 defines globally applicable criteria for occupational health and safety management systems. Verification that the criteria are satisfied is a credit to any company and an automatic image boost. As a leading audit and certification body, SQS has many years of experience and expertise spanning all sectors of industry. This explains why the SQS certificate for health and safety standards conforming to ISO 45001 is held in high regard and accepted all over the world.


ISO 45001 helps improving the safety culture and reducing the burden on the staff by establishing a framework for occupational health and safety improvement, for reducing workplace risks and for creating safer and better work conditions. In this way, productivity is enhanced (less workdays lost) and the attractiveness as employer is increased.

3 years - there is an annual audit to ensure that standards are being maintained and a recertification audit after 3 years.
