About the course...

This course is for those who require full knowledge of how to conduct an audit of an OHS management system. Ideally suited to those who have to develop, implement, maintain, improve, manage, or audit OHS, our OHS Management Systems Lead Auditor course will leave you ready to hit the ground running.

ISO 45001:2018 is the brand new International Standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems and replaces the current Australian Standard for Health and Safety – AS/NZS 4801:2001. It will help businesses streamline their management systems, processes, and controls as it now aligns with the requirements provided in other ISO standards, including ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management Systems), and ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management Systems).

This course has the equivalent of 36 Professional Development (PD) points.

Plus, you receive a free licensed copy of:

  • ISO 45001:2018 OHS management systems – Specifications with guidance for use
