List of documents required by ISO 45001:2018

The ISO 45001 standard provides us with some insight about what documents are required. Compared to OHSAS 18001, there are not too many changes, but the documentation requirements are easier to manage, following the logic of the new versions of other ISO standards. Of course, the standard does not explicitly mention documents and records, but uses the term “documented information.”

The following represent a list of documents that you need to maintain in order to comply with ISO 45001:

  • The scope of the OH&S MS (clause  4.3)
  • OH&S management system (clause 4.4)
