Safety standards are standards designed to ensure the safety of products, activities and/or processes to create a safe and healthy workspace. Safety standards may be either voluntary or statutory.
What are the Safety Standards?
ISO 45001 is an international safety standard created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as the international requirements and guidelines for occupational health and safety management systems. ISO 45001 is an international safety standard that sets up a framework for you to meet all Federal/State/local regulations, and does not contain requirements for any particular country/economy.
