The new ISO 9001 and ISO 14001
To become the best, and remain the best, organizations need a management system that helps them deliver the best products and services for the marketplace, while taking into account the needs of the environment in which they are working. Some of the foundations for a successful strategy is ISO 9001 for quality management and ISO 14001 for environmental management.
In this issue of ISOfocus, we bring together the latest commentary on the new ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. We ask the top experts in the field for the latest information and advice on the newly revised management system standards (MSS).
Whether you are an employee, a manager or a business owner, you share a common goal - you don't want anyone to get hurt on the job.
Here, David Smith, Chair of the committee developing ISO 45001 for occupational health and safety (OHS), tells us how the standard will reduce risks and create better working conditions around the world.
There is a need to be proactive and anticipate action.

Responding to our planet's ecological challenges, the revision of ISO 14001 supports organizations in reducing their environmental impact and understanding the effect the environment has on their business.
