About the course
The Oil and Gas sector relies on ISO management system standards for quality (ISO 9001:2015), environment (ISO 14001:2015) and occupational health and safety (ISO 45001:2018) to enable attendees to manage performance within their own organizations and to select and manage suppliers.
