Telarc and ISO 45001 – the landscape is changing

ISO 45001

  • The Health & Safety landscape in NZ changes from this March with the introduction on March 12 of the globally developed ISO 45001 standard.
  • This new standard is designed to identify and reduce risk across your organisation, to bring top leadership more into health and safety management and to improve the health and wellbeing of your workforce.
  • There is much to be learned about the new standards and how they will be interpreted and applied in New Zealand. Telarc’s focus in the months ahead is to identify the rules that will accompany the new standard, and how these can be applied to enhance your business.
  • Please be assured that at whatever stage you may be on the H&S certification cycle, we have plenty of time to ensure you will be in the best position to not just comply, but to benefit from the introduction of the new standard.
  • We will provide regular updates for you as we learn more, and will post these on this site along with further short videos designed to help you understand the implications of ISO 45001 for your operation.
