ISO 45001:2018
Annex SL
What’s changed?

Context of the organisation
ISO 45001:2018
Interested Parties

How do / should we cater for their needs /

expectations within our management system?

Operational and geographical boundaries?

Where is the scope documented?
Management System

Have you got a ‘computer’? Is H&S ‘woven into what

you do’?
Manager Leader
Oversees processes well Wants to create the future
Must achieve balance Needs to make change
Thinks ‘execution’ Thinks ‘ideas’
Comfortable with control Welcomes risks
Problems needs fixing ASAP Problems are opportunities
Procedure is king Thinks outside the box
Gives orders Shows how its done
Can be impersonal Warm and approachable
Go and do it Let’s make it happen!

Good systems need a suitable mix of both…

How can you evidence these?
Risks & Opportunities

Consider both risks AND opportunities as a

‘raspberry ripple’, not a ‘dollop on top’…
Consultation & Participation

Non-managerial workers are a key ingredient!

Two halves – consultation and participation
