ISO 45001:2018 (OH&S) Awareness Training


ISO 45001:2018 is the world's first internationally recognized standard for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S). This replaces the old OHSAS 18001:2007, providing a comprehensive framework for organizations to manage OH&S risks, and improve performance through effective policies and objectives.

Regardless of an organization's size, industry, or nature of business, ISO 45001 can be integrated into existing management processes. It follows the same high-level structure as other ISO management system standards, including ISO 9001 (quality management) and ISO 14001 (environmental management).

This ISO 45001:2018 (OH&S) Awareness PPT presentation is an effective tool to educate employees, new hires, and auditees on the ISO 45001 standard. It can also be used as a supplement to OH&S professional training and internal auditor training materials.

The presentation covers key topics, including the definition and benefits of ISO 45001, the high-level structure, the certification process, the audit approach, and practical tips on how to handle an audit session. By teaching this material to employees, they will have a better understanding of ISO 45001 and be more comfortable with the certification process.

By adopting ISO 45001, organizations can demonstrate their commitment to OH&S management and ensure a safe and healthy workplace for their employees.
