Duration: 1 day
Safe and health-oriented working and living conditions on board of ships are vital to avoid injuries, work related illnesses and deaths during the complex operations & environments in shipping. In order to ensure these conditions, the implementation of occupational health and safety policies is required by MLC 2006 (Reg. 4.3) and Flag state laws. Hence, shipping companies have until now established OH&S management systems based on the BS OHSAS 18001. On 12 March 2018, the new ISO 45001:2018 was published and will replace the existing BS (British Standard) in the future.
This course will enable you to make an efficient transition from your existing OHSAS systems to the modern ISO 45001:2018 or to implement a new OH&S management system from scratch. You will understand the business benefits of implementing an OH&S management system and useful methodologies for integrating the OH&S management system into other management systems like ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISM & the MLC 2006 Convention.
