Published in June 2021, ISO 45003 is a set of guidelines for managing psychosocial risks in the workplace. It was put together by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) as a result of increased research on the negative impact of psychosocial risks on workers.
It was developed so that organisations of all sizes can implement processes that aim to protect their workers from psychological hazards and to provide them with support for their mental health and well-being. This will help more workplaces build a positive working environment that improves organisational resilience and enhances productivity and staff retention.
As a set of guidelines, ISO 45003 is not a Standard with requirements in the same way that ISO 45001 is, for example. However, QMS will be offering a certificate that demonstrates compliance with its principles.
For those organisations who currently hold ISO 45001 certification, ISO 45003 will help them to maintain their occupational health & safety management system and meet ISO 45001’s requirements.
ISO 45003 can also be incorporated into other ISO Standards.

QMS will be offering its own certificate to ISO 45003 that organisations can work towards. However, ISO 45003 is also well suited to being incorporated within other ISO Standards, including the following:
ISO 45001 / ISO 45003
Pair your processes for psychosocial health and well-being in the workplace with the international Standard for occupational health & safety for a comprehensive management system that considers all workplace risks to health.
ISO 9001 / ISO 45003
Pair the guidelines for worker mental health with the Standard for quality, which also places emphasis on staff well-being for stronger production and efficiency.
ISO 9001 / ISO 45001 / ISO 45003
Create an integrated management system that combines mental health and well-being with frameworks supporting occupational health & safety and quality management.
ISO 9001 / ISO 14001 / ISO 45001 / ISO 45003
