  1. Obtain a copy of ISO 45001.
  2. Identify the gaps in the OHSMS which need to be addressed to meet any new requirements.
  3. Develop an implementation plan.
  4. Ensure that any new competence needs are met and create awareness for all parties that have an impact on the effectiveness of the OHSMS.
  5. Update the existing OHSMS to meet the new requirements and provide verification of its effectiveness.
