ISO 45001: A Pathway to Improve Resiliency

Resilience is defined as “the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties.” One way your facility can have the capacity to recover is to be prepared.

ISO 45001, the international standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, requires organizations to identify hazards, risks, and opportunities, and then take appropriate action to address those issues.

Organizations are also required under ISO 45001 to develop emergency preparedness and response capabilities. Monitoring, measuring, performance evaluation, and training all contribute to an organization’s ability to continually improve their safety and health systems and be prepared to respond to emergencies.

Having an ISO 45001 system in place goes a long way to prepare an organization to have the capacity to recover quickly from any difficulties that may interrupt your plant operations. For more information about ISO 45001 and resiliency contact Bryan Lane at
