The wellbeing of the worker is the primary focus of ISO 45001

The automotive industry has long recognised the importance of creating a strong safety culture and has led the manufacturing sector in demonstrating the importance of employee morale and safety to productivity and, ultimately, revenue.

The IATF recognises certification to ISO 45001 as providing conformance to specific clauses within the IATF 16949:2016 standard. ISO 45001 is increasingly being mandated by global OEMs. BSI can conduct migration audits on-site or remotely.
