Introduction to Health & Safety Management Systems (ISO 45001)

This short course introduces you to business processes and ISO 45001:2018 Health & Safety Management Systems. It lays the foundations for understanding, implementing, and working with Health & Safety Management Systems.

Providing a safe and healthy environment for your employees is a legal requirement for all organisations. ISO 45001:2018 (replaced OHSAS 18001) is the international standard for occupational health and safety management, which provides organisations with a framework to improve their OHS performance. Understanding the principles and methods of ISO 45001 will help you to reduce workplace accidents and injuries, manage legal and statutory requirements and identify and control the risks associated with the organization’s activities, products, and services.
