EHS - ISO 45001 and ISO 14001
The international standard for implementing an Environmental Management System is ISO 14001 Certification (EMS). It explains a process that organizations can use to create a strong EMS. Similar to ISO 14001, ISO 45001 Certification (OHSAS 18001) focuses on managing occupational health and safety issues rather than environmental ones. These include workplace risks, OSHAS administrative requirements, and anticipated emergencies. EHS can provide both the requirements for the ISO 14001 Certification administrations and the ISO 45001 Certification framework.
The balance between environmental concerns and health and safety has become less of a priority for organizations as a result of this. Simply put, it makes good business sense to develop EHS, strong and fully functional health and safety management system, and environmental management to aid in compliance with the new standard.
Adopting EHS makes it easier to manage commercial and environmental risks, ensures that employees understand their responsibility for maintaining safety and welfare, and helps to keep the environment in balance by lowering workplace accidents.
Numerous sizable businesses are requesting ISO 14001 certification from their suppliers. This is especially clear in the automotive and electronics industries, and a large number of foreign-based firms also need ISO 14001 certificates alongside ISO 45001 certificates.
An EMS that emphasizes environmental concerns and legal consistency issues is formed by ISO 14001 standards. Workplace risks and other Health and Safety concerns are governed under OHSAS 18001/ISO 45001. With the aid of these principles, improvement goals can be created. Projects and control reports (work instructions, operating manuals, etc.) can then be prepared to deal with the framework.
More than 50 firms have benefited from EHS’s ISO 14001/ISO 45001 (OHSAS 18001) administrations.

Currently, ISO 45001 replaces OHSAS 18001.
The new ISO 45001 Standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems was just released by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) (OHSMS). The ISO 45001:2018 provisions provide a framework for advancing representative security, lowering workplace risks, and creating better and more secure working circumstances for workers everywhere. Over a five-year period, ISO/PC 283 developed the standard, incorporating the vast majority of requirements from the previous OHSMS standard, OHSAS 18001.
To sum up
EHS encompasses fundamental management, customer, requirements, policy, procedure, planning, performance, and objective principles as well as controls, monitoring, measuring, auditing, decision-making, and corrective action of the standards’ requirements.
Adopting EHS makes it simpler to manage environmental and commercial risks, guarantees that workers are aware of their duty to maintain safety and welfare, and contributes to environmental balance by reducing workplace accidents.
