This training is designed to help transfer your existing auditing skills from other management systems to those needed for audits of occupational health & safety management systems (OH&SMS).

If you have already successfully completed an IRCA certificated 5-day Lead Auditor training course, you can use the OHSAS 18001:2007 Auditor Conversion Training to broaden your skills and knowledge base to understand and audit to OHSAS criteria. The principles of OHSAS 18001 set out a clearly defined management system so that you can examine and control an organisation’s occupational health and safety risks and vulnerabilities.

On training completion you will be able to:

  • Apply in-depth knowledge of the intent of the safety standard and the OHSAS 18001 audit certification process and the role of auditors in the context of the standard
  • Understand the importance of a safety policy and how it should be based on the significant risks identified by the organisation
  • Have the skills and knowledge needed to conduct third party audits against the requirements of the OHSAS 18001 
  • Meet the training requirements for registration as an OH&SMS Auditor or Lead Auditor with the IRCA. 

This course is certificated by IRCA (course no. A16894).
