Measuring the carbon footprint of buildings in a simple way

Singapore Budget 2018: Carbon tax of $5 per tonne of greenhouse gas emissions to be levied There are hundreds of millions of individual buildings in the world, and few thousands in Singapore, each presenting multiple and diverse energy needs. Even though most countries have introduced policies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in buildings through measures to improve energy efficiency, these policies have not resulted in a significant reduction in emissions.

Migration to ISO 45001 Organizations Using OHSAS 18001:2007

For any organisation, the degree of change necessary will be dependent upon the maturity and effectiveness of the current management system and organisational structure and practices.

Identify the gaps in the OHSMS which need to be addressed to meet any new requirements. Develop an implementation plan. Ensure that any new competence needs are met

Therefore, once ISO 45001:2018 has been published, the official status of OHSAS 18001:2007 will be considered as being “Withdrawn” taking account the three-year migration period.
