ISO 45001 supports World Day for Safety and Health at Work

This year, the World Day for Safety and Health at Work on 28 April focus on the safety and health of young workers. According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), globally, young workers (15-24 years old) account for 15% of the world’s labour force and suffer up to 40% higher rate of non-fatal occupational injuries than adult workers (older than 24). Every day, 6,300 people die as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases.

ISO 45001, Occupational health and safety management systems – Requirements with guidance for use, provides a framework for organizations to improve the health and safety of all workers, regardless of age or gender. It requires organizations to have processes in place for the consultation and participation of workers at all levels and functions, meaning that even the most vulnerable of workers should have a voice. Companies are encouraged to adopt this standard to minimize the risk of harm, both in terms of long-term health issues and absence from work, as well as risks that give rise to accidents in the workplace.
