New International Health and Safety standard, ISO45001

This interactive course will update participants on current Health & Safety legislation so you can help your organisation to achieve Due Diligence. Attendees will also learn the latest information on injury and fatality rates and workplace safety prosecution trends across NZ and Australia.

We will introduce trainees to AS/NZS ISO 45001, the new Safety Management System Standard that was released in late 2018, discussing the additional requirements now expected of organisation’s Safety Management Systems. ISO 45001, was introduced in March 2018 as the first international health and safety at work standard to be issued. By October 2018, it had been adopted in NZ and Australia as the Safety Management System Standard, replacing both BS 18001 and AS/NZS 4801.

This course is designed for both Safety Management System Developers / Implementers and Auditors as we will consider the new standard from both perspectives. From an implementation perspective, we will compare AS/NZS 4801: 2001 to AS/NZS ISO 45001: 2018, identifying new requirements and we will workshop how your organisation can meet these requirements. We will analyse the greater safety leadership demands on top management and increased worker safety participation.

From an audit perspective, we will develop an Audit Tool for part of AS/NZS ISO 45001. We will later use this Audit Tool as one of the assessments of the course so participants can demonstrate their auditing ability.
