A CQI and IRCA Certified OHSMS ISO 45001:2018 Auditor Conversion training course – recommended for existing Lead Auditors (Course ID: 2387)

This 3-day CQI and IRCA certified ISO 45001 Auditor Conversion training course is designed for existing 1st, 2nd and 3rd party auditors who are seeking to broaden their auditing expertise and knowledge to audit an Occupational Health & Safety Management System (OH&SMS) against ISO 45001

Focusing on a central case study of the company ‘Excelsafe’, this interactive course allows delegates to put ideas learnt into practise. Delegates will work within a group to identify the documentation required to audit the company against ISO 45001, review company procedures, identify hazards within the site tour, interview senior management, raise corrective actions and write nonconformity reports.

Assessment of the course is by continuous assessment and an examination on the final day.

This ISO 45001 Auditor Conversion course teaches delegates the knowledge and skills to confidently plan, conduct, report and follow-up an OHSMS audit. Key topics covered during this 3-day course include:

  • occupational health and safety overview including key terminology
  • ISO 45001 requirements
  • audit preparation – OHSMS documentation requirements
  • compliance
  • OHS legislation and codes of practice
  • hazard identification, risk assessments and management of controls
  • the full audit cycle (plan, conduct, report and follow-up)
  • evaluating top management’s commitment to the OHSMS
  • generating audit findings including evaluating objective evidence to correctly identify conformity and nonconformity with ISO 45001 requirements
  • identifying opportunities for improvement

  • Delegates who have successfully completed a Lead Auditor training course in an alternative discipline, for instance ISO 9001 or ISO 14001, and now wish to undertake 1st, 2nd and 3rd party audits of OH&SMS against ISO 45001
  • Experienced auditors who now wish to audit against ISO 45001

  • verify that the OH&S policy commits to compliance with regulatory and legal requirements
  • evaluate processes for hazard identification and assessment of OH&S risks
  • plan, conduct, report and follow-up an audit for an OH&S management system to establish conformity (or otherwise) with ISO 45001 in accordance with ISO 19011 and ISO/IEC 17021 where appropriate

For delegates who have successfully completed Lead Auditor training in another discipline, successful completion of this course will satisfy the training requirements for certification as an IRCA certified OHSMS auditor.

Our ISO 45001 Auditor Conversion course can be held at a location of your choice, for example your premises or our Virtual Classroom. Dedicated training is often more cost effective and convenient for those looking to train three or more delegates.
