Preview ISO/FDIS 45003:2020 attached
This document gives guidelines for managing psychosocial risk within an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system based on ISO 45001.
It enables organizations to prevent work-related injury and ill health of their workers and other interested parties, and to promote well-being at work.
It is applicable to organizations of all sizes and in all sectors, for the development, implementation, maintenance and continual improvement of healthy and safe workplaces.
NOTE When the term "worker" is used in this document, worker representatives, where they exist, are always implied.
The new standard provides guidance on how organisations can manage workplace psychological risk by identifying the primary risk factors and determining what would improve the working environment.
ISO 45003 provides guidance on the following:
Specifically, Clause 6.1 of the draft ISO 45003 standard indicates that organisations should identify hazards of a psychosocial nature including:
- Aspects of how work is organized (e.g. job control, job demands, work pace, etc.)
- Social factors at work (e.g. work-life balance, bullying, harassment, etc.)
- Work environment, equipment and hazardous tasks
The draft standard provides plenty of more examples and detail of the above types of psychosocial hazards. It also gives guidance on how to identify and assess these psychosocial risks. The standard also addresses support issues including a specific clause on confidentiality of personal information.
