BUSINESS CHALLENGE – Why Occupational Health and Safety ?  

With more and more industrialization and transportation of goods across the globe, work related injuries, ill health and fatality is one of the greatest challenges for the mankind. In 2016/2017 in the UK alone an estimated 31.2 million working days were lost due to work related illness and workplace injury, This equates to an estimated cost of 14.9 billion Pounds in one year.

It is a challenge for industry to understand and prioritize the Occupational, Health and Safety hazards and risks in their business processes. The need for an internationally acceptable standard to systematically manage the hazards and risks and improve the performance was felt for a long time. International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has adopted various existing Health and safety standards (such as BS OHSAS 18001) and published ISO 45001 in 2018, which specifies the requirements for a management system to protect against and reduce the likelihood of occurrence of risks 


It is essential that all managerial and non managerial workmen are made fully aware of the hazards at workplace and the risks arising out of these hazards to the Safety of employees as well to the organization and methods to control them. It is also important that all employees are fully made aware of the applicable laws of the land and their provisions as applicable to their area of operations and consequences of not complying with the requirements. Formal training of employees is the right step in this direction.


The aim of this course is to provide delegates with the knowledge and skills required to perform first, second and third-party audits of Occupational Health & Safety management systems against ISO45001, in accordance with ISO19011 and ISO17021, as applicable. All references in this document to ISO standards are to the current versions unless stated otherwise. Delegates who complete this CQI and IRCA Certified ISO45001 Lead Auditor (OHSAS) Training course successfully (within the three years prior to making an application to become a certificated auditor) will satisfy the training requirements for initial certification as an IRCA OHSAS auditor.

There will be a formal written examination at the end of the course. All the delegates who successfully complete both the continuous assessment and final examination would be awarded the “Certificate of achievement” and other participants will be awarded with “Certification of attendance”.


The program uses a mixture of taught sessions, interactive group discussions and exercises to achieve its aims. The practical exercises are based upon the procedures, work instructions and could relate to many different enterprises equally.
