[…] Based on the latest information on the revision of occupational health and safety standard ISO 45001, the publication date could be extended to March 2018. […]
I was sure that there would be an ISO 45001:2017 instead of ISO 45001:2016 – because I am an optimist. This is the most controversial standard in the history of ISO.
Der umstrittenste Standard in der Geschichte der ISO:
- http://www.vincotte-certification.com/en/safety/iso-450012017-standard/ (Falsch in der ansonsten ordentlichen Meldung ist die Behauptung, OHSAS 18001 werde ein ISO-Standard. Die Norm ISO 45001:2017 wird sich deutlich von dem ziemlich guten britischen Standard OHSAS 18001:2007 unterscheiden.)

ISO 45001 on occupational health and safety has been approved for Draft International Standard public consultation
by Elizabeth Gasiorowski-Denis on 12 February 2016
Now that ISO 45001 has advanced to the DIS stage, national member bodies of ISO have been invited to vote and comment on the text of the standard during the three-month balloting period. If the outcome is positive, the modified document may then be circulated to ISO members as a Final Draft International Standard (FDIS). In the event of an affirmative vote, ISO 45001 is expected to be published as an International Standard by late 2016 / early 2017. […]

Actually, the DIS already was available earlier. But the ISO article has useful links.

The clocking is ticking as we look forward to OHSAS 18001 becoming an official ISO standard, known as ISO 45001. […] The new standard will be official[ly] called ISO 45001:2016. […]
- ISO 45001 will be different from OHSAS 18001 and not necessarily better. Don’t neglect the small but important details. Example: In OHSAS 18001:2007, clause 3.8 is not only about physical ill health, but also about mental ill health: “Ill health: Identifiable, adverse physical or mental condition arising from and/or made worse by a work activity and/or work-related situation.” In the committee draft the definition of “ill health” has been omitted completely.
- “The new standard will be officially called ISO 45001:2016.”
How about ISO 45001:2017?
Admittingly, “Ill health: Identifiable, adverse physical or mental condition arising from and/or made worse by a work activity and/or work-related situation” is not a good definition, because ill health of course can be caused by reasons which are not related to work. But this is no excuse for omitting the definition of “ill health” completely.
My proposal is: “Ill health: Identifiable, adverse physical or mental condition arising from and/or made worse by various causes.”
