ISO 45001: Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems

What Is ISO 45001 Management Systems Accreditation?

ANAB offers accreditation for occupational health and safety management systems conforming to ISO 45001. (Existing accreditations for ANSI/AIHA Z10, BS OHSAS 18001, and/or CSA Z1000 are being migrated to ISO 45001.)

OHSMS is a base standard program in ANAB’s fee schedule.

Please refer to the information about the accreditation process at How to Become an ANAB-Accredited Certification Body.

You can view the OHSMS application in .pdf format to understand specific requirements but the application process must be completed online via ANAB’s EQM database; first-time EQM users must register to create an account.
