OHSAS 18001 has now been replaced with ISO 45001, please follow the link to our ISO 45001 Lead Auditor training course.

This five day OHSAS 18001 Lead Auditor training course is CQI and IRCA Certified (Ref: 17225) and fulfils the CQI and IRCA training requirements for registration as a 3rd-party OHS management systems auditor. You learn to build on the skills of how to plan, structure and conduct an effective OHSAS 18001 audit and to evaluate and communicate the findings. The course is designed to follow the stages in a live audit, including simulated audit interviews and role play closing meetings.
