This training innovation from SQMC will up-skill you to go back to work and carry out positive, value-added internal audits of your organisation's Environmental and/or Health and Safety Management Systems. Rather than attending two separate courses (one for each Standard, requiring four days of your time), you can – in half the time – get up-to-speed on the two most in-demand International Standards that relate to your task: ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007.
Your highly-qualified tutor will take you through each Standard (both are written in modern, 'human-friendly' terms) giving you a fantastic grounding in their clauses (which are cleverly designed to align with each other for ease of use), before explaining SQMC's time-tested tips and techniques of conducting friendly and efficient internal audits.
99.5% of participants successfully achieve their Certificate of Successful Completion from SQMC – an IRCA-accredited training body; which satisfies the relevant Certification Body surveillance audit HR requirements. As well as now having the confidence to conduct audits yourself, you will have an improved ability to actually design, implement, and continually-improve an Environmental or Health and Safety Management System (or both, as is increasingly common) – either as an employee, or an external consultant.
The course is also useful for General or HSE Managers of organisations due to be audited, who are keen to gain prior knowledge of exactly what to expect!
Experienced 3rd Party Auditor and Trainer, Ron Rivans, summarises the personal learning benefits of SQMC's Internal HSE Auditor training course:
"Delegates interested in either 18001 or 14001 are taken through the requirements of these two Standards and shown where clause compatibility can be considered – and how it can reduce the duplication of procedure writing. Advantages are also obtained through examination of fewer procedures during the internal audits of companies who have implemented two or more systems.
"Organisations who have implemented, or are in a position of implementing, ISO 14001 and are seeking to train their staff as Internal Auditors, frequently find they are looking to implement OHSAS 18001 thereafter. This is very common as companies quickly see the benefits of 14001 registration, and are looking to manage their Health & Safety system more effectively; or are driven by supply chain pressures.
"Those interested in 18001 will, similarly, learn when to implement and audit a 14001 Environmental Management System, as well as the 18001 system in which they are interested."
No prior experience of OHSAS 18001 or ISO 14001, or Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) audits is required to enrol on this training course.
