As lockdown loosens, your company is no doubt getting ready to go back to business. But working in a post-pandemic world means that we all must take extra precautions when it comes to health and safety.
Implementing an occupational health & safety management system, such as ISO 45001, can give your business a solid footing for a safe and adaptable workplace.
An effective ISO 45001 management system will help you to:
Understand the needs, expectations and concerns of your team members to help you implement processes for employees’ wellbeing and a safe working environment
Review your personnel’s medical information to identify people at risk
Review existing policies related to social distancing, working hours, health monitoring and reporting
Identify opportunities to improve the mental health of team members
Proactively communicate with regulators for guidance on compliance with legal and other requirements
Identify improved measures to protect the health and safety of visitors on site
Engage employees through consultation and participation to improve the new processes
Encourage the reporting of hazardous situations so that preventive measures can be put in place and appropriate corrective action taken
Evaluate whether newly implemented policies and procedures are being effectively deployed
