ISO 45001 Internal Auditor Training Course

  • Course Duration: 2 days


ISO 45001 requires organisations to audit their Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Management System and to use audit results to continually improve it.  Training gives guidance on establishing a successful internal audit programme and provides skills to carry out every stage of the audit process effectively.

Who should attend

  • Newly appointed Health and Safety Management System Managers who seek key audit skills for this important role.
  • Employees who will be carrying internal audits. No previous audit experience is required.
  • Non-auditors who want to understand audit and its benefits.

This should also be seen as a first step in training for those who may, in the future, carry out health and safety audits of suppliers and contractors.

If participants require detailed understanding of ISO 45001 requirements, they are recommended to complete our ISO 45001 Foundation Course.


  • Participants will be able to perform internal OH&S Management System audits effectively and confidently.
  • Sponsor organisations will be able to establish an audit programme which will help to eliminate or minimise health and safety risks.
