ISO 45001 is an international standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OH&S MS), which has replaced OHSAS 18001, that specifies requirements for an OH&S Management System to enable organizations to proactively manage their OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill health, along with controlling their occupational health and safety risks. LAAP is prepared to assist you in the development and implementation of your ISO 45001 Management System in preparation for certification.

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) developed ANSI Z10, which is a voluntary consensus standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems.

It focuses on principles that are broadly applicable to organizations of all sizes and types and is compatible with occupational health and safety, environmental and quality management systems. LAAP assists your company by conducting comprehensive auditing to ensure conformance with this consensus standard.
