New occupational health and safety ISO published today

The new BS ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems was published today (12th March 2018).  The ‘world’s first global occupational health and safety management system standard’ differs significantly from the current occupational health and safety management standard OHSAS 18001:2007.

OHSAS 18001 is being withdrawn on publication of ISO 45001 so companies that are currently certified to OHSAS 18001 will have a three year period to upgrade to ISO 45001 (by 11th March 2021).

The EA has updated its odour management plan guidance

The EA has updated its odour management plan guidance. Overall, the guidance outlines how operators must control and monitor emissions from their activities that may cause pollution.

Changes include clarifications regarding when the EA will want an odour management plan. They may request one during pre-application, determination, variation or at any point during the lifetime of your permit.

Also, Materials recycling and handle odorous inputs or reject streams and Intensive Farming have been added to the list of Activities that require an odour management plan.
