CQI and IRCA certified ISO 45001:2018 Auditor Migration training course (Course ID: 1875) for existing OHSAS 18001 auditors looking to transition to ISO 45001.

ISO 45001 replaced OHSAS 18001 as the new management systems standard aimed at enabling organisations to better manage their Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) risks and to improve their OH&S performance.

This two day ISO 45001 Auditor Migration training course is designed to teach delegates about the structure of ISO 45001 (which is based on the Annex SL framework for new ISO management systems standards), the requirements of ISO 45001 and what the implications are for OH&S management system auditing.

This training course is CQI and IRCA certified and will satisfy CQI and IRCA’s mandatory training requirements for individuals needing to retain their IRCA OHSMS Registration. All IRCA OHSAS Auditors will have only 3 years in which to successfully complete a CQI and IRCA Certified ISO 45001 Auditor Migration course. This training course will also be useful for those wishing to work with the newly developed ISO 45001:2018 standard and it will provide the knowledge and skills to audit against it. Please note that prior knowledge of OHSAS 18001:2007 is essential.
