What is this course about?

Course overview:

This course focuses on the 2018 revision of the ISO 45001  standard that replaces the OHSAS 18001: 2007 OHSms standard. It will empower OHSms practitioners and auditors to understand the requirements thereof. This course will allow organisations to effectively transition their current OHSms,that is based on OHSAS 18001: 2007 standard, to conform to the ISO 45001: 2018 based standard. It will also skill OHSms auditors to audit OHS management systems against the new ISO 45001: 2018 standard.

Some of the key characteristics of this course are:

  • A pragmatic and simple approach to explain the requirements of the standard and the links between the elements of management systems;
  • Practical advice, with value-adding resource kits that explain best practice techniques; and
  • An interactive panel discussion for every new clause to address challenges, clear potential misperceptions and explore solutions on how to effect the transition to ISO 45001: 2018.
