ISO 45001 Lead Auditor (IRCA)

This training is not being offered at the moment, but please ask our contact person for more information (contact information on the training front page).

It is a challenge for industries to understand and prioritize the occupational, health, and safety hazards and risks in business processes. Indeed, the need for an internationally acceptable standard to systematically manage the hazards and risks and improve the performance was felt for a long time.

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has adopted various existing Health and safety standards (such as BS OHSAS 18001) and published ISO 45001 in 2018, which specifies the requirements for a management system to protect against and reduce the likelihood of occurrence of risks.

ISO 45001 Lead Auditor (IRCA) –course uses a mixture of taught sessions, interactive group discussions, and exercises to achieve its aims. The practical exercises are based upon the procedures, work instructions and could relate to many different enterprises equally.

After successful completion of the course delegates should be able to:

• Explain the importance of controlling health and safety in all types of business.

• Outline the requirements of a health and safety management system including the requirements of ISO 45001:2018.

• State the key legal requirements relating to occupational health and safety.

• Identify the key documented management systems to control health and safety.

• Appreciate the importance of risk assessments.

• Outline auditing principles.

• Demonstrate how to plan and execute a health and safety audit.
