Integrated Management Systems (ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007) - XBUS1471

Credit: 0 (21:0:0 hours)

In view of the linkages among the various environment and occupational health and safety issues, organizations worldwide are addressing environment and health and safety (EHS) issues in an integrated way rather than dealing with them in isolation. ISO 14001 establishes the requirements for identifying environmental risks and establishing an environmental management system (EMS) to address the environmental issues in an organization. OHSAS 18001 focuses on the occupational health and safety (OHS) issues in a similar fashion. Both standards are designed on the principle of continual improvement through a "Plan-Do-Check-Act" (PDCA) approach and offer great opportunity for an integrated approach to integrating EHS issues. Organizations having an integrated EHS management system (EHSMS) based on ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 will be able optimize their resources and effectively identify the key environmental and OHS risks and address them in a systematic way to achieve continual improvement in their EHS performance. An integrated EHS management system can reduce disruptions to operations and promote greater cohesiveness in environmental and OHS issues. This course will help participants understand the requirements of ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. They will learn how to integrate these requirements to have a common management system to address environment and OHS issues and achieve a continual improvement in the EHS performance.
