In response to the disruption of COVID-19, the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS ANZ) have announced extensions to the migration deadline for ISO 45001 certification.
The IAF, Project Working Group and ISO had agreed to a three year transition period which would have originally ended in March 2021, however, this has now been extended to September 2021.
Standards Australia has adopted ISO 45001:2018 as AS/NZS ISO 45001:2018 and this now supersedes AS/NZS 4801:2001 and OHSAS 18001:2007. Organisations that are certified to the two superseded standards should plan on migrating to ISO 45001:2018 by the 12th September 2021.
Gallagher Workplace Risk have accredited Integrated Management Systems Auditors (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001) who are able to assist you in conducting a gap analysis and bridging the divide between OHSAS 18001, AS/NSZ 4801 and ISO 45001.
