What are the advantages of a health and safety policy based on ISO 45001? We list the top eight benefits for you below:
The main advantage of ISO 45001? Fewer illnesses and accidents.
By getting started with ISO 45001, you boost your employees' mental well-being and increase their productivity.
Your insurance premiums? They go down. Your employee retention? That goes up. As a result, you have less need for short- or long-term replacements.
Interested in gaining more prestige in the outside world? With ISO 45001, you enjoy a rock-solid reputation for well-being and safety.
Thanks to ISO 45001, you actively involve everyone in your policy. Even board members. This is how you create a real culture around health and safety on the shop floor.
Public sector? Private? Large or small? Every organisation, regardless of sector, can apply this standard in a way that meets their needs.
Thanks to ISO 45001, you have an edge over other employers who don’t work with this standard. Because with you, candidates can be sure they’ll have a healthy and safe working environment.
Are you working with a management system for occupational health and safety? Then you’re contributing to many of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs. For example, SDG 3 (good health and well-being), SDG 5 (gender equality), SDG 8 (decent work and economic growth), SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure) and SDG 10 (reduce inequality).
'Employees not only expect a healthy and safe work environment. They also perform better when there is assurance about their health and safety.'
