This course introduces learners to the Leadership and Worker Participation clauses of the ISO 45001:2018 standard covering Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OH&SMS). It explains top management’s role and responsibilities in conforming to the standard and the processes required for consultation and participation of workers.
Good health and safety in the workplace requires effective processes, such as those required by ISO 45001, to be established and maintained. However the effectiveness of an OS&H management system is driven by the culture of the organization. This module explores culture and the two key elements that underpin it – leadership and worker engagement.
