What is ISO 45001 certification?
ISO 45001 certification is a globally recognised standard that helps organisations to manage their Health and Safety controls. It can be applied to companies of all sizes in the private sector, as well as universities, charities, not-for-profit and public sector organisations.
Achieving certification to ISO 45001 provides independent assurance to your existing and potential customers and other interested parties that you have suitable and sufficient Health and Safety risk management controls in place. It can also give you that vital edge over your competitors.

Frequently asked questions
The duration of ISO 45001 implementation with consultancy depends on various factors, such as the size and complexity of your organisation, the level of existing processes and documentation, and the availability of resources. Typically, ISO 45001 implementation can take 4-6 months, depending on the scope of the project.
We have a 100% success rate guiding our clients through ISO 45001 certification, however, it’s important to note that the certificate we support you through is carried by an entirely independent, accredited certification body and by its nature is not something we can ever guarantee. We believe this gives you a level of compliance that is second to none.
Yes absolutely. We can provide ongoing support to help you maintain compliance with the standard and continuously improve your quality management system. This can include conducting regular internal audits, facilitating management reviews, providing training and guidance on process improvements, helping you address areas where you are no longer meeting the standards and suggesting effective remedies.
Yes, definitely. It’s perfectly possible to implement ISO 45001 without the support of specialists like ourselves and some businesses go down this route if they have suitable expertise in-house. However, ISO 45001 implementation can be complex, time-consuming and easily postponed in favour of more immediate issues. Engaging one of Teamworks’ highly qualified ISO 45001 consultants can help ensure that all requirements are met effectively and efficiently, increasing the chances of successful certification.
This certification does not have an expiration date. However, it is important to note that ongoing compliance and periodic surveillance audits are necessary to ensure the organization continues to meet the standard’s requirements or your certification could be suspended. Organizations must continually monitor and improve their occupational health and safety management systems to retain ISO 45001 certification. Our consultants can provide ongoing support to ensure your certification is maintained.
For a consultancy team who routinely manage compliance programs for other organisations, progressing through our own certification process is always a valuable reminder of how the experience feels and we think that this contributes towards our efficient but sympathetic approach to consulting for others.
