Learn the practical steps involved in performing an internal audit of occupational health and safety management systems (OH&SMS) against ISO 45001 on this ISO 45001 Internal Auditor training course.

This course provides the knowledge and skills to plan, conduct, report and follow up an OH&S audit, through case studies and interactive workshops.

Delegates will also learn to go beyond simply assessing compliance to evaluate the effectiveness of a process and identify opportunities for business improvement.

This course is suitable for anyone who has some understanding of the requirements of ISO 45001 and would like to learn how an OH&S internal audit is performed. That includes:

  • anyone who needs to perform internal OH&S audits within their organisation
  • those responsible for implementing and maintaining an OH&S management system
  • those wishing to understand the internal audit process
  • health and safety professionals
  • existing auditors seeking to expand their knowledge to audit against ISO 45001

This course does not cover the requirements of ISO 45001 in detail. Some delegates find it beneficial to attend our Introduction to ISO 45001 training course (delivered the day before the Internal Auditor course) to gain a better understanding of ISO 45001 and its requirements. We offer a discount of £100 if you book this with your ISO 45001 Internal Auditor training course.

The topics covered by the course include:

  • background to OH&SMS auditing
  • clauses of the standard
  • audit planning – OH&S risks
  • OH&S hazards
  • audit planning
  • audit preparation and checklists
  • audit techniques
  • nonconformity, reporting and corrective action
  • nonconformity writing
  • the auditor
  • audit close out

On completion of this ISO 45001 internal auditor course delegates will be able to:

  • perform all stages of an internal OH&S audit based on ISO 45001, including preparation, conducting the audit and follow up
  • assess the compliance and adequacy of their organisation’s OH&S management system through internal auditing
  • contribute to the continual improvement of the management system and a safe and healthy workplace

Delegates who take part in the course in full will receive a certificate of attendance.  This course contributes 14 hours towards continuing professional development (CPD).
