End of Globalisation? What now for ISO 45001?

Chris J Ward

Do Brexit and "America First" mean an end to the need for global standards like 18001 and 45001?  Or is there a new greater need for some objective external standard?  

Pressing questions;

  • Will trade diversion or trade creation take place?  
  • What is the role for the supply chain countries?  New trade deals mean new opportunities.  
  • How are you and your organisation placed to take advantage of these opportunities?
  •  Does your health and safety status facilitate acceptance in the new order.

Will trade diversion or trade creation take place?
Perception: Actually there are a real effort around the world to standard many manufacture's methods and when the companies put it work on based on the same rule can be done whatever the facility is located. Considering the issues presented at the attached file , I believed that is possible but for long time. The ISO 45001 can help with each part of the process by showing to company where the budget could invested better. To EHS team the ISO 45001 will contribute implementing a systematic health program in short time and the team did not lost time stating from "zero" (since the beginning) the process of implantation.

What is the role for the supply chain countries? New trade deals mean new opportunities.

The opportunities that you are refereeing is about the goods but not necessarily to manufacturing process. An standardization just put on the four parts of the world and one company can move from here to there (USA from China) and the result will be same or with few points to solve it.

How are you and your organisation placed to take advantage of these opportunities?

Does your health and safety status facilitate acceptance in the new order?

Yes we do.
