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.
