ISO 45001 Lead Auditor Course Overview

The ISO 45001 Lead Auditor course will help delegates understand the auditing process, as well as the key changes from the OHSAS 18001, and how to identify and assess workplace hazards. Given that a significant number of work-related accidents and diseases happen every year, it is important to understand the principles of employee safety and risk reduction to ensure safety for all employees. The ISO 45001 was officially introduced in March 2018 as the first international standard for maintaining health and safety at workplaces through a flexible framework.

While ISO 45001 has drawn inspiration from the OHSAS 18001, it is important to understand that this ISO course is a new standard in its own right and not a revision of the OHSAS certification. The main differences between OHSAS 18001 and ISO 45001 is that the former is procedure-based, inflexible, and deals exclusively with risk. The ISO 45001 is an advanced framework that is process-based, flexible, considers risk and opportunities, and it also considers the views of all parties concerned with health and safety at work.
