ISO 45001 Transition Module for Auditors, Managers & Staff (single day)

It's 2021, meaning time is running out to update your staff's old OHSAS 18001 qualification. You can still gain an understanding of the changes and requirements brought in by ISO 45001 with SQMC. Scroll for details...

OHSAS 18001 Auditors, time is running out to update your CV!

The three year 'grace period' granted for auditors to refresh their Health and Safety qualification -- in line with the requirements of the replacement International Standard for Occupational Health and Safety, ISO 45001:2018 -- ends in 2021.

Re-train or update?

ISO 45001 takes over from the out-going OHSAS 18001:2007 British Standard, and the good news is that auditors previously trained to 18001 do not have to re-take an entire Internal or Lead Auditor course again to stay 'valid' -- you can update your qualification through attendance on this SQMC (or similar) one-day module. Please note that auditors who are personally registered with IRCA may require to undertake a two-day course, not offered by SQMC.

I'm not an auditor. Should I attend?

This Transition workshop will be beneficial for anyone responsible for the implementation or maintenance of an ISO 45001-based Safety Management System. Managers affected by an 'SMS' should also consider attending the course, to gain a clear understanding of how the changes and additional clauses will impact their role.

Freelance consultants and trainers will also want to attend, and the course is worth 7 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points in the Chartered Quality Institute.
