OHSAS 18001 was created via the concerted effort from a number of the world’s leading national standards bodies, certification bodies, and specialist consultancies. A main driver for this was to try to remove confusion in the workplace from the proliferation of certifiable OH&S specifications.
The OHSAS ISO45001:2018 specification gives requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, to enable an organization to control its OH&S risks and improve its performance. It enables an organization to prevent its workforce under its control from work-related injury and ill health. OHSAS fulfils and complies with relevant legal requirements and continual to address opportunities for improvement of its OH&S performance.
This course provides delegates with an understanding of how to conduct an audit on management system based on ISO 45001:2018 focusing on the organization’s processes, risk approach and its OH&S performance.
This course is in line with ISO 19011, the guidance standard on auditing. This course is particularly designed for new auditors but can also be attended by experienced auditors who need to re-fresh their auditing skills.
