ISO 45001 Overview

Course Summary

ISO 45001 Overview training provides an overview of ISO 45001:2018 requirements and prepares students to establish or enhance an existing Occupational Health and Safety program in a manner that provides the greatest business benefit.


ISO 45001 is an Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) international standard that provides a framework for an organization to proactively manage the risks and opportunities associated with workplace hazards in order to prevent work-related injury and ill health to workers. This management system framework is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act model, augmented with requirements for visible support and commitment by top management, and the engagement and involvement of workers. The intended outcome is to provide a safe and healthy workplace.

This standard has been designed to be integrated into an organization’s overall Management System (MS) and implemented seamlessly with its Quality and/or Environmental Management System, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

This interactive course takes students through each of the clauses of ISO 45001, providing an overview of the key requirements. Through discussions and team exercises, participants will understand the underlying concepts of:

  • Organizational Context,
