To provide healthy and safe working conditions, organizations need a robust management approach that drives the prevention of physical and mental harm and the promotion of workers’ health. In addition to benefiting workers, it is also good business. First, a healthy workforce is more productive and engaged. Second, promoting a healthy work environment helps to attract – and hold on to – talented workers.
Companies now better equipped to report on both harm prevention and health promotion
AMSTERDAM, October, 4 2018 /3BL Media/ - Healthy and safe working conditions are recognized as a human right – yet it is estimated that close to 2.8 million people die from work-related injuries and illnesses every year, according to the International Labour Organization. A lack of robust occupational health and safety (OH&S) management can put the lives of workers and their families at risk and can limit countries’ potential for sustainable development.
ISO has developed a new standard, ISO 45001, Occupational health and safety management systems - Requirements, to help organizations reduce the burden of occupational injury and disease and make workplaces safer.
Antea Group’s blog provides a background to this standard, its difference from OSHAS 18001, its implications for your business, and how being proactive in risk management is imperative to keeping your workers safe.
The proposed changes are now open for your review - until 9 October
GRI 403: Occupational Health and Safety - used by organizations to report on impacts related to worker health and safety - is one of the first GRI Standards to be updated. The revised draft Standard is now available for public consultation through 9 October 2017.
Does your organization use the GRI Standards to report on its occupational health and safety management and impacts? Do you have transparency requirements that you would like the GRI Standards to address?
