I don’t know whether any 45004 standard will be necessary. As far as I understand, ISO 45001 already will include guidelines.
An incident based on OHSAS 18001:2007 is an incident in which
※ physical ill health (regardless of severity) occurred,
※ physical ill health (regardless of severity) worsened,
※ physical ill health (regardless of severity) could have occurred,
※ physical ill health (regardless of severity) could have worsened,
※ mental ill health (regardless of severity) occurred,
※ mental ill health (regardless of severity) worsened,
※ mental ill health (regardless of severity) could have occurred,
※ mental ill health (regardless of severity) could have worsened,
※ injury occurred,
※ injury could have occurred,
※ fatality occurred,
※ fatality could have occurred.
An incident based on ISO/DIS 45001.2:2017 is an occurrence arising
※ out of work or
※ in the course of work
※ could or
※ injury and/or
※ ill health
(regardless of severity)
which both are an adverse effect (including occupational disease, illness and death) on the
※ mental or
condition of a person.

What will the World do with OHSAS 18001 when ISO 45001 is published? (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/8319963/8319963-6130997825703542787, Chris J Ward CMIOSH, Committee member at British Standards Institution ISO 45001)
[…] It cannot just be withdrawn immediately. It is written into law or regulation in some countries and this will take time to manage. There is a three year migration period planned to allow organizations to move from OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001 and this migration should not be too difficult for those already implementing OHSAS 18001.

In my country (Germany) the change will be very interesting to works councils. Here most employees didn’t have a clue when OHSAS 18001 was implemented in their companies, even though leaving them clueless was not only not compliant with the standard, it also was against the OH&S laws. But now, if the employee representatives learned from that and if they got involved in audititing their employers’ OH&S management system based on OHSAS 18001, they will be better prepared to use the migration form OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001 as an occasion to apply their rights&duties (co-determination) when implementing ISO 45001.
