As we all know, many organisations are going paperless with the business industry evolving rapidly due to the new approach of modern technology and especially mobile technology. In order for companies and organisations to adapt to these rapid changes, more efficient and secure procedures need to be taken place to maintain the same or an even higher level of competence.
Today many different organisations, operating in different industry sectors at different sizes, are choosing to move their inspection processes onto paperless systems. OHS metrics inspection is the premier way to ensuring that data from inspections is being utilised to make better strategic decisions and keeping staff safe at the workplace. According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), around 2.78 million people die each year as the result of occupational accidents or work-related issues.
Providing a framework to improve conditions and employee safety in the workplace, the new standard is centred around the idea of reducing possible risks. The standard follows other industry standards such as OHSAS 18001, and its expected full publication is in mid-2018. Regardless of company size and stature, the new ISO 45001 standard aims to fulfil objectives for any type of organisation.
