Our guest speaker for the night is Er. CHUI Heng Tak to share with us Overview of ISO 45001. He provided an overview of the new ISO 45001 that will replace OHSAS 18001. He shared that the standard adopts the High Level Structure (HLS) introduced by the ISO body in 2012 for all management systems. With the HLS, ISO 45001 requires top management to identify organization context which include identification of internal and external interested parties and their needs and expectation; exercise leadership and taking more accountability to ensure the work environment is safe for the workers and interested parties; actions to address risks and opportunities, and elimination of safety hazards and reducing safety and health risks.
