ISO certification in Iraq is a major beneficiary factor for the organisations. ISO 45001 generally focuses on the occupational health and safety management system. Implementation of ISO 45001 standard will help the organisation to have a social responsibility will served along with it will bring the confidence in each employee in the organisation to work confidently towards the organisation welfare. Adoption of the high-level structure of ‘Annex SL’ enables organizations to integrate ISO 45001 with existing ISO 9001 Quality and ISO 14001 Environmental management systems. This approach has reduced the complexity of multiple clause requirements across different standards applications, saving time and resources. The standard provides a systematic approach for senior leadership to assess OH&S risk and opportunities, monitor and review safety performance and set objectives for continual improvement within the ‘context’ of organizational activities. This may include, for example, worker health promotion campaigns or the monitoring of the OH&S effects of products and services provided.
In addition to internal process controls, the standard has provided requirements to assess procurement of products and services which may have influences on OH&S. For example, risk based structured management of contractors. Such a process can in-turn provide controls to reduce both OH&S risk, promote positive safety culture and protect business. The standard provides a structure to monitor and review compliance obligations to ensure the organization is legally compliant including products and services. It is important for an organization to understand what it is to achieve, why it needs to achieve and if it has achieved – this should be demonstrated within the system.
Implementation is a demonstration and commitment from senior leadership to internal and external stakeholders (interested parties) of the intent to protect workers from accidents including short- and long-term ill health effects. Of course, this may in-turn reduce downtime, lead to reduction or prevention of worker loss time hours and potential prosecution. This commitment also provides assurances to the Board of Directors, Trustees or owners that management controls regarding OH&S risks inherent within the organization. The ISO 45001 Certification in Iraq standard promotes worker participation when identifying hazards, elimination or reducing risk by implementation of controls integrated with other business process. This approach can improve safety culture, minimise risk and embed best practice resulting in increased productivity.
Both internal and external audit programmes provide scrutiny and effectiveness of the OH&S management system including processes. The programme promotes communication and participation of workers with identification of gaps leading to continuous improvement. With an emphasis on workers taking an active role in OH&S matters, this can have positive benefits on an organization’s reputation as a safe place to work leading to staff retention, motivation and greater productivity. Implementation is also recognition for having achieved an international standard benchmark which may have positive influence on existing and potential customers in fulfilling their own social responsibility commitments.
Risk Based Thinking Risk Based Thinking (RBT) is a central tenet of ISO 45001. RBT requires the Management Team to continually assess the issues that affect OH&S aspects of an organization and ensure that appropriate targets, resources and controls are in place. RBT empowers organizations to make dynamic changes to their objectives and focus, whilst at the same time ensuring that resources are in place to control changes and unforeseen circumstances. In relation to OH&S, risk-based thinking extends to areas outside of the organization which may influence safety. For example, procurement of products and services (including contractors) and the impact of supplied products and services. The organization must determine the methodology for risk-based thinking with consideration of compliance obligations and the participation of workers. For operational aspects the standard clearly defines the hierarchy of control for hazard identification and the reduction of risks with the involvement of workers. This methodology requires the organization to reduce risks associated with hazards to a reasonably practicable level.
