Protection of mental health dropped in ISO 45001?

Question to BSI:
=== ISO 45001 vs. OHSAS 18001 ===
In contrary to OHSAS 18001, in ISO 45001 there is no definition for “ill health” which puts “mental” and “physical” adverse conditions on a same level. Can employers in countries, where protecting mental health is not reqiuired by laws, claim, that ISO 45001 does not cover mental health issues anymore, as did OHSAS 18001?
May be (hopefully) I am wrong. TÜV SÜD says that there is an even stronger emphasis on mental health.
See also: “The need to prevent ill-health (including mental ill-health), as well as injuries” in
2016-03: It’s in the latest draft. I hope that it also can be found in the fonal ISO 45001.

Your comment on the OH&S standard ISO 45001!

BSI closed the comment pages.

Have your say on the planned OH&S standard ISO 45001:

  • First draft:
    • For “3.19A Incident” goto
    • For “7.4.2 Participation, consultation and representation” goto
  • About BSI:


My comment on the term “Incident”, which presently is defined as “Occurrence arising out of or in the course of work that could or does result in death, injury or ill health”, contains this remedy proposal:

“Occurrence arising out of or in the course of work that could or does result in ill health (regardless of severity), injury or death” would reach the level of OHSAS 18001:2007. 
The terms “ill health” and “injury” should be defined.
OHSAS 18001 defines “ill health” as “identifiable, adverse physical or mental condition arising from and/or made worse by a work activity and/or work-related situation.”
