ISO 45001 – Management Systems

ISO45001 Certification Training
 

COURSE DURATION:  1 DAY

COURSE SUMMARY:
OH&S 18001 is technically a British standard that the world has adopted; it is not officially an ISO standard. The changes that are currently under-way aim to:

  • update the standard as the last update/revision was 2007
  • bring the standard in-line with the new Annex SL
  • make it an International standard rather than a UK standard

Annex SL defines a common high-level structure for all new and revised ISO management system standards – using common text in the standards. This will also have a significant impact on the revisions of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 – currently being prepared.

The high level structure of the standard will be:

1. Scope
2. Normative references
3. Terms and definitions
4. Context of the organisation
5. Leadership
6. Planning
7. Support
8. Operation
9. Performance Evaluation
10. Improvement

Clauses 4, 5, 9 and 10 are significant deviations from the present ISO management system standards.

With the successful completion of this course the participant will be able to:

• Have a good overview of the development and evolution of the new standard
• Have a good understanding of the new requirements
• Have a good knowledge of the actions required to achieve a successful transition

Who should attend?

This programme is designed for ALL functions and levels of an OHSAS 18001 certified organization that needs to gain knowledge of the differences in the new standard. In particular, this course is suitable for personnel assigned to ensure a successful transition to the new standard.

This should be a priority for SHEQ Management Representatives and process owners.

Course Venue:

Courses are presented at the Nirvana Head Office in Brakpan, as well as major centres in South Africa.

Additional Information:
The maximum number of participants for this course is 20 with a minimum of 10.
A certificate of attendance is provided on completion of this course.

COURSE DURATION:  3 DAYS
