I've been looking at various toolbox kits to assist with setting up our OHS management system.  I've just joined the company and finding that there is very little way in procedures, policies, risk assessments etc etc.  Where to start?  I've not had experience with toolbox kits in my previous employment, but this looks like a good way forward.  Appreciate any advice/guidance if any.  thank you.

Palmer - an "ISO 45001 tool box kit" sounds like sales speak to me.

If there is as little in place as you suggest, I think I might be tempted to start with HSG65 before making a decision as to whether you want systems etc to conform with ISO 45001, - let alone think about going for accreditation UNLESS there are commercial pressures to do so, e.g. client requirements.

....and even if you do have such pressure, I would be thinking about ISO 9001 first - if you accord with 9001, relatively easy to get systems to accord with 45001 and various other standards. In simplistic terms, all starts with effective document control.

I've never even heard of toolbox kits so you are way ahead of me. I just did a gap analysis and got the resulting actions done.

Use a new name and sell it as a new scheme ;-)

Tool box talks have been intrinsic to workplace communication (except where they are generic).

Picking up the wrong terminology is rife in H&S exampled by my personal pet peeve that a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is NOT/NEVER/EVER WILL BE a COSHH sheet aka assessment (20 years since the regulations were first published and the construction industry still can't get it right).

You don't need a kit, produce your own tool box talks relevant to your business & relate to the 45001 by showing employee involvement & communication.  They are good to use if you have reviewed a process.

Well there have been some diverse interpretations here of what is meant by "an ISO 45001 toolbox kit."

A kit for creating a management system -  a kit of toolbox talks.

I am curious to hear what was actually meant!
