An Intensive 5-day Training Course

Implementation of Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety Management Systems

Developing, Implementing and Assessing Management Systems for
Continual Improvement of the Organisation

Course Introduction

This OXFORD Implementation of Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety Management Systems training Course introduces the principles of Quality, Health & Safety and Environmental (QHSE) Management Systems and how the three (3) respective standards of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and iso 45001 can be implemented. What is an integrated management system? An integrated business management system focuses on competitive advantage, employing common processes to efficiently manage and optimize performance.

This five-day workshop focuses on the integration of the standards. The intent is not to teach the “shalls” of each standard, but rather to understand how the requirements and clauses are integrated and their impact on audit systems and the auditing process. Other topics include audit systems, the auditing process and auditing instruments; the documentation process; conducting an audit; writing an audit report; and taking corrective action.

Internal audits are fundamental to all management systems as they are a means to establish status of conformity. This Implementation of Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety Management Systems training course advocates an integrated approach to minimize disruptions to operations, as well as a process risk and performance-based approach that is especially helpful in identifying weak links between processes and opportunities for improvement.

Key highlights of this Oxford training course are:

  • Background to the standards and the benefits
  • Key elements
  • Implementation of the Management Systems
  • The roles and responsibilities of the individuals concerned
  • Tools and techniques for identifying and resolving issues


This Oxford training Course will provide delegates:
