ISO 45001: 2018 (Internal Auditor Training)


Kulevi Oil Terminal always adheres to all new updates and replacements according to ISO standards. A training course for the new ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management system replacement of former OHSAS 18001 was organized for employees included in the internal auditors' group at the terminal.

 

The new standard replacement was developed by the ISO organization based on the report of the International Labor Organization (ILO). As per the report, every year, millions of workplace accidents occur, as well as a number of non-fatal work-related injuries and illnesses, which in turn results in extended absences from work.

 

So in hopes of changing this situation ISO released a new version of ISO 45001, which will be a real game changer for millions of workers. This new standard is expected to enable organizations in their effort to provide safe and healthy workplaces by preventing work-related injury and illnesses, as well as improving its occupational health and safety performance. The standard also provides organizations with effective, usable guidance for improving worker safety and is expected to lead to a major transformation in workplace practices and reduce the tragic toll of work-related illnesses and accidents.

 

The training method was theoretical in nature and had an assessment at the end of each module, as well as a final assessment at the end of the training course. Based on the assessment results, all the participants have been qualified to be internal auditors as per ISO requirements. The aim for providing this training was to prepare the employees for internal audits and to assess and improve the company’s management system.

 

In summary, ISO 45001 is a proactive, companywide approach for incorporating a safety culture in the organization. It is a framework that will take Kulevi Oil Terminal to the next level in safety and health.
