Internal Occupational Health & Safety Management System Auditor Training (ISO 45001) : 2 Days

 Classroom Course

Irrespective of whether a company is a manufacturing or service industry, it has a statutory obligation to operate in a manner that safeguards the health and safety of its workforce. Implementation of a recognised occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system such as ISO 45001 is one way to meet that obligation.

Auditing the system and identifying non-conformances and improvement opportunities is essential in ensuring effectiveness.

The ISO 45001 standard requires that audits are completed, but it does not tell you how to do them. Our experienced team will show you a simple, comprehensive and effective approach for auditing that has helped several organisations achieve certification, while saving time and money.
