Documenting Management Systems (ISO 9001, ISO 14001/EMAS, OHSAS 18001)

Documenting Management Systems – Background To become certified to management system standards such as ISO 9001, ISO14001 or OHSAS 18001, it is essential to develop a comprehensive and effective documentation system. Organisations that already have a certified management system (e.g. ISO 9001) may wish to expand this to meet the requirements of additional standards (e.g. ISO 14001). Deciding where these sorts of systems overlap is important to minimising documentation and avoiding duplication.This one-day course will be of interest to companies who are at an early stage of developing a management system (quality, environmental and/or health & safety) and who wish to identify the documentation requirements and develop an action plan to get started. This course aims to provide learners with an understanding of the documentation requirements of these standards and how these can apply to their organisation.
