The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) devotes the latest issue of its ISOfocus magazine to the first international standard on occupational health and safety, ISO 45001, which was published recently. 

According to the final version of the project, the stated objective of the standard is to propose a reference framework to promote “safe and healthy workplaces, prevent work-related traumatisms and diseases, and constantly improve occupational health and safety performance”.

Although a number of important points have been taken into account, France is one of the countries which have maintained their opposition to this standard through to the end. It will nevertheless take part in the work of the new “Occupational health and safety management” ISO/TC whose creation was approved recently.
