Every 15 seconds, somewhere in the world, a worker is killed and over 150 others are injured. Our members' and clients' experience is that committed application of an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) can reduce such incidents, while providing a platform for sustained cultural change. We call this 'predict and prevent' instead of the unstructured approach of 'react and remedy.' Participants will receive a template OH&S-MS manual for their own use as part of the study materials. This class provides a complete review of the new international standard for occupational health and safety management, ISO 45001:2018, as well as an overview of other common OH&S-MS (HSG65, ILO OSH-2001, IOGP HSE-MS) that can be aligned to organizations' own systems. Over five days, the class works through a Plan, Do, Check, Act improvement cycle teaching the tools and techniques of excellent practice. The course includes a week-long practical implementation case study set in the fictional highly-realistic setting of oil products distribution company Melvis Group where the new learning is validated through application. Please see for more information.
