Course Description

To make any management system successful, auditing is a very basic, and crucial, element. This course is an intensive and highly-rated 5-day program for the preparation of delegates for the qualification of ISO 45001:2018 and seeks to prepare them on how to conduct an audit. The overall concept of the course is to provide practical and theoretical knowledge of the Occupational Health & Safety Management System. 

ISO 45001 is the first global Occupational Health and Safety Management System standard that replaces OHSAS 18001. The RICI Certified ISO 45001 Lead Auditor training course helps in developing the necessary skills to perform occupational health and safety management system (OH&S MS) audits by applying widely recognized audit principles, procedures, and methods.

This training course has been developed to reflect the importance of an effective audit. It strengthens your knowledge and skills to plan and carry out an OH&S MS audit in compliance with the guidelines for auditing management systems provided in ISO 19011.

The 5-day training program consists of exercises that are designed to help you practice the most important aspects of an OH&S MS audit: ISO 45001 requirements, auditing principles, tools and techniques used to obtain evidence, leading a team of auditors, conducting interviews with auditees, reviewing documented information, drafting nonconformity reports, and preparing the final audit report.

After acquiring the necessary expertise to perform this audit, you can sit for the exam and apply for a CQI-IRCA-approved ISO 45001 Lead Auditor credential. By holding a CQI-IRCA-approved ISO 45001 Lead Auditor Certificate, you will demonstrate that you have the capabilities and competencies to audit organizations based on best practices.
