This assistance could be face to face or virtual online. Here are some of the key steps required for ISO 45001:2018 certification:

  • Gap analysis of existing quality practices vs ISO 45001:2018 Standard requirements.
  • Understanding of process approach and risk-based thinking.
  • Identification and prioritization of OHS hazards and risks
  • Identification of OHS compliance obligations.

  • The international accreditation forum (IAF) is the first place you should go to check if an ISO certificate is valid. If an organization’s certification body isn’t on the IAF list, then the certification isn’t valid.
  • Next, you should check if the certification is from a national accreditation body. These bodies are responsible for accrediting organizations in their respective countries. If an organization is certified by one of these bodies, then you can be sure that the certification is valid.
  • Third, you should check the expiration date on the certification. Most ISO certifications are valid for three years, after which they need to be renewed. If a certification doesn’t have an expiration date, or if the expiration date has passed, then it’s not a valid certification.
  • Fourth, you should check to see if the organization has been recertified. Organizations need to go through the recertification process every three years to maintain their certification. If an organization hasn’t been recertified, its certification is no longer valid.
  • Fifth, you should check to see if the organization has been suspended or revoked. If an organization’s certification has been suspended, it means that they are no longer in compliance with ISO standards. A revocation means that the organization is no longer certified at all. Either way, an organization with a suspended or revoked certification is not one you should do business with.
  • Sixth, you should check to see if a third party has accredited the organization. Many organizations offer accreditation, but not all of them are equal. Make sure to check that a reputable third party accredits the organization you’re looking at before doing business with them.
  • Finally, you should contact the certification body to verify the certification. This is actually the best way to check if an ISO certificate is valid. The certification body can tell you if the certification is still active and whether or not the organization is in good standing.

Select the applicable ones depending upon the nature & structure of your organization. For more information check out – UN Sustainability Goals in detail.
