    As the world seems to be creating hard borders and adjusting trade tariffs it can feel like the world is getting smaller and less cooperative. Health and safety is trying to do the opposite. 2018 saw the launch of the eagerly anticipated international standard 45001 and along with this terminology that could be used internationally. REACH celebrated 11 years in June this year and INSHPO signed an Accord in late 2017 looking at global standards for the OHS professional.
