Process for the adoption of ISO 45001 commences in Australia

Australia has begun the adoption process for ISO 45001 after recommendation by Standards Australia’s Technical Committee SF-001 and following consultation with a broad range of experts from across government, industry, employee associations, and academic institutions.

AS/NZS ISO 45001 will include commentary on how the adopted standard relates to the occupational health and safety legislative framework in Australia and is expected to be published before the end of 2018.

If AS/NZS ISO 45001 is adopted in Australia as a voluntary standard, consideration will be given to the status of the current Australian standard AS/NZS 4801.
