New standards set to improve safety of medical device connections in clinical settings

Delivery systems for food, liquids, medications and gases, such as oxygen, are important medical devices that patients and health professionals rely on every day. In order to deliver the product intended, these systems rely on the correct choice and use of connectors.

ISO 45001

ISO 45001, one of the world’s much anticipated standards for occupational health and safety (OHS), has been approved as a Draft International Standard.

Every 15 seconds, a worker dies from a work-related accident or disease, and 153 people experience a work-related injury. These represent an enormous burden for organizations and society as a whole, costing over 2.3 million deaths a year, not to mention the more than 300 million non-fatal accidents*.

Now, with ISO 45001 at the Draft International Standard (DIS) stage, the world is one step closer to a robust and effective set of processes for improving work safety in global supply chains. Designed to help organizations of all sizes and industries, the future standard is expected to reduce workplace injuries and illnesses around the world.
