Introduction to ISO 45001:2018
ISO 45001 applies to all organisations, regardless of the size, industry or nature of the business. It is created to be integrated into an organisation’s existing management processes. Furthermore, it follows the same high-level structure as other ISO management standards like ISO 9001 (quality management) and ISO 14001 (environmental management).
ISO 45001 is the very first worldwide Occupational Health and Safety Management System standard that replaces OHSAS 18001. The ISO 45001 Lead Auditor course allows you to establish the needed competence to perform an Occupational Health and Safety Management System audit by using globally recognised audit methods, principles and concepts. Furthermore, throughout the ISO 45001 Lead Auditor training course, you will gain the knowledge and abilities to prepare and carry out external and internal audits.
Based on effective workouts, you will have the ability to master the audit strategies and eventually end up being qualified to manage an audit program, audit group, interaction with consumers and dispute resolution.

What are the benefits?
ISO 45001 allows organisations to put in place an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system. This, in turn, will assist them in managing their OH&S risks and thereby improving their OH&S performance by developing and implementing effective objectives and policies.
Key benefits from the use of the standard are as follows:
The standard requires the company’s top management to promote consultation with, as well as participation from workers and their representatives, as these are critical factors in OHS Management.
Consultation indicates a two-way communication – dialogue and exchanges – and includes the timely provision of the information that workers as well as their representatives need before the organisation can take a decision.
The OHS management system depends on employee participation, which enables employees to contribute to decision making regarding OH&S performance and give feedback on proposed changes.
The organisation must encourage employees at all levels to report hazardous situations so that preventive measures may be put in place and necessary corrective action is taken. Also, workers must be able to communicate and suggest areas of improvement without the fear of dismissal, disciplinary action or related reprisals.
