What is it?

ISO 45001 is the world’s first ISO management system standard for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S). Its focus on risk prevention, innovation and continual improvement will benefit organizations with the foresight to achieve this global standard through increased organizational resilience. Suitable for organizations large or small and in any industry, it is intended to replace the widely implemented BS OHSAS 18001. 

If you are involved in the auditing, maintaining, or supervising an ISO 45001 management system, then this course will help you to initiate an audit, prepare and perform audit activities, perform and distribute audit reports and complete follow-up activities.
