ISO 45001:2018 (OHSMS) Lead Auditor Course

Over 7600 people lose their lives every single day due to accidents or diseases that occur at work; this equates to over 2.75 million deaths annually.

The burden of occupational injuries and diseases is significant, both for employers and for the economy as a whole. This burden leads to losses for employers in the form of early retirements, staff absences, and rising insurance premiums.

To address this issue, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has developed a new standard called ISO 45001, which is titled "Occupational health and safety management systems - Requirements." This standard will assist businesses in reducing this burden by providing a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks, and produce better, safer working conditions all over the world.

Other generic management system approaches, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, serve as models for the development of this standard, which was developed by a committee of experts in occupational health and safety. Other International Standards pertaining to this field, such as OHSAS 18001 and the ILO-OSH Guidelines, along with a variety of national standards and the International Labour Organization's (ILO) international labour standards and conventions, will all be taken into consideration by this standard.
