ISO 45001:2018 Migration and Auditor Migration Training Course

2 Day Course


Are you an OHSAS 18001:2007 Internal or Lead Auditor who wants to develop the expertise to audit an ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OH&S)? This course is ideal for existing auditors as it combines the 1-day 'ISO 45001 Migration' course with an additional day of auditing activities. You'll learn how ISO 45001 is different to OHSAS 18001:2007, and apply this practically in order to build your ISO 45001 auditing skill.

Essential information about the course

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 will replace the widely implemented BS OHSAS 18001.

If you are involved as either an internal auditor or as a lead auditor for a BS OHSAS 18001 management system and planning your migration to ISO 45001, then this course is for you.

This high-impact, practical course combines our 1-day ‘ISO 45001 Migration’ course with an additional day of auditing activities. You will learn about the High Level Structure (HLS) upon which most new ISO management system standards are based, and how to apply the new standard practically in order to build your ISO 45001 auditing skills.
