Description

The aim of this module is to explore the issues involved in the integration of two or more stand-alone management systems, with the main focus in this module relating to the integration of Occupational Health and Safety (OSH) Management Systems (e.g. OHSAS 18001, ISO 45001) and Environmental Management Systems (e.g. ISO 14001, EMAS). The module will also explore the issues involved in integrating additional management systems such as Quality (ISO 9001), Energy (ISO 50001) etc.

Key areas for integration will include the context of the organisation, leadership, planning, risk assessment, training and awareness, communication, documentation, operational controls, emergency preparedness and response, performance evaluation and improvement.

The module will also address both Internal and External Auditing and the requirements of ISO 19011.
