Pentax Water Pumps announces upgrade to iSO 45001

In compliance with the March 12, 2021 deadline, Pentax is pleased to announce the final transition from OHSAS 18001 to iSO 45001 for occupational safety management system compliance.

iSO 45001 represents a new internationally recognized system that, in addition to sharing the approach of iSO 9001:2015 (Quality Management System) and iSO 140001:2015 (Environment Management System), modernizes an outdated standard, aligning it with the HLS (High Level Structure) approach.

What changes from the past?

In addition to a universally recognised approach, the iSO 45001 standard introduces:

– Greater importance to the company’s organisational context: safety management must be clear with clearly defined authority and responsibility;

Leadership and direct responsibility: The company’s top management is called upon to manage health and safety at work directly (without delegation) in the various processes that characterise it

– A proactive approach: it becomes the company’s task to clearly identify and describe opportunities for improvement in the health and safety of workers
