ISN Hosts the ISO Technical Committee (TC-283) to Discuss the ISO 45001 Standard
ISN welcomed more than 80 delegates from over 35 countries for the ISO Technical Committee (TC-283) meeting at ISN’s headquarters in Dallas, Texas, last week. The full scope of ISN TC-283 is standardization in the field of occupational health and safety (OH&S) management to enable an organization to control its OH&S risks and improve its OH&S performance. The ISO TC-283 Committee is responsible for the ongoing development of the new ISO Standard, ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OHSMS) – requirements with guidance for use, and the development of supporting guidance and standards. ISO 45001 defines good practices in OH&S management and specifies requirements for a management system. The meeting last week sought to move new global projects forward and raise recognition of the newly approved ISO 45001 Standard, as well as develop an implementation guideline.
