This extensive 3-day course provides complete guidance in the implementation of an ISO 45001 occupational health and safety management system. It demystifies the language of the standard, providing simple, easy-to-follow steps to help organizations align with each clause. It is designed for anybody wishing to implement or be part of a project to implement an ISO 45001 OHSMS. ISO has stated that companies currently certified to OHSAS 18001 will have until March 2021 to upgrade their certification and remain certified, making a strong case for the need for trained Implementers.

ISO 45001 has been designed by a worldwide committee of occupational health and safety experts to help businesses reduce work-related incidents and improve employee health. It integrates with other ISO management standards including ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. This Lead Implementer course is the final and most extensive offering in our ISO 45001 course selection.
