JSC Yamal LNG announced that its Integrated HSES Management System (hereinafter — IMS) successfully passed certification requirements for the new ISO 45001:2018 «Occupational health and safety management system» and proven compliance with ISO 14001:2015 «Environmental management systems».
Minerva Marine obtained ISO 45001 certificate by DNV GL, becoming the first Greek shipmanagement company to obtain this ISO. Now, Minerva upgraded its occupational health and safety management system from OHSAS 18001 to the latest ISO 45001 standard.
ISO 45001 will help the organizations not only to manage their OH&S risks and improve their OH&S performance by developing and implementing effective policies and objectives, but also to reduce workplace incidents and the cost of insurance premiums.
ISO 45001 emphasizes the need for worker participation in the functioning of an OH&S management system, as well as requiring that an organization ensures that its workers are competent to do their assigned tasks safely.
The new occupational health and safety standard, ISO 45001, has been approved following a final vote of 93% by the ISO member National Standard Bodies. According to ISO Technical Director, Jose Alcorta, publication is anticipated in March 2018.
