What is happening with ISO 45001?

Advantage ACT would like to update our clients on the development of ISO 45001, which is expected to replace OHSAS 18001.

Following publication of the Draft International Standard (DIS) in February 2016, The International Committee met in Toronto from 6-10 June 2016 to discuss over 3,000 comments which had been submitted during the ballot. It was agreed at the closing plenary session to move to publication of a 2nd DIS, which is expected in December 2016 or January 2017. The final standard is now expected in the second half of 2017.

The discussions during the committee meeting centered around minor changes needed to some key ‘Terms and Definitions’ such as the definitions relating to  ‘worker’, ‘participation’ and the definition of hazard. Minor changes were also proposed relating to areas such as ‘Participation and consultation’, ‘awareness’ and ‘the hierarchy of controls’. The next International Committee meeting is scheduled for October 2016 where the remainder of the comments submitted will be discussed and the content of the 2nd DIS finalised.

Recognizing how vital OH&S is to keeping employees safe and healthy around the world, Advantage ACT is committed to keeping our clients and all other interested parties up-to-date regarding the status of this process.  While waiting for the new standard, we continue to support our clients to help reduce risk, protect workers and maintain compliance.


Imminent Changes to the South African OHS Training Landscape

by Joep Joubert


Most of our readers are by now aware of imminent changes to the South African training landscape. When the SAQA Act was introduced in 1995, it started a long and laborious process to better regulate the SA training landscape, to amongst others, redress the inequalities of the past. This lead to things like the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), unit standards and unit standard based qualifications, which we complained about, but today is as much part of our day as having a meal.

Most of us did not realise the impact at the time, but our landscape is again in the process of changing due to the introduction of the NQF Act, 67 of 2008, that replaced the SAQA Act and introduced the concept of three quality councils, namely Umalusi, the Council for Higher Education (CHE) and the one that concerns us most, the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations or the QCTO as more commonly known. This article would like to briefly explore some of the more pertinent changes to the OHS training and qualification landscape that will soon start impacting on us all.
