ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) Internal Audit

OHSMS Internal Audit is a systematic evaluation of an organization’s health and safety management processes to ensure compliance with ISO 45001 standards. It aims to identify potential hazards, assess risks, and evaluate the effectiveness of controls in place to protect employees and stakeholders.

The internal audit process begins with planning, where audit objectives, scope, and criteria are defined. Trained auditors then conduct audits by examining documentation, observing workplace practices, and interviewing personnel. They assess the organization’s compliance with legal requirements, identify areas of non-conformance or improvement, and recommend corrective actions.

Internal audits play a crucial role in enhancing workplace safety and preventing accidents and injuries. They help organizations identify and mitigate risks, improve safety procedures, and promote a culture of safety awareness among employees. Additionally, internal audits support continual improvement by identifying opportunities to enhance the effectiveness of the OHSMS.

 ISO 45001 internal audits are essential for organizations to demonstrate their commitment to workplace safety, comply with legal requirements, and protect the health and well-being of their workforce. They contribute to creating safer work environments, reducing incidents, and fostering a culture of safety excellence. Our ISO 45001 training course is tailored to provide participants with the expertise and capabilities to assess the effectiveness of the occupational health and safety management system.
