This course is designed for professionals that are responsible for implementing, improving, or integrating a health, safety and environment management system. This course prepares organizations to establish and/or maintain a management system that improves environmental and economic performance, reduces lost worker time due to accidents and illness, and meets increasingly stringent government regulations and customer requirements.

Delegates will examine in detail requirements in such internationally recognized standards for health, safety, and environmental management as ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.

They will learn how to write the policies, procedures, and work instructions that make up an integrated HSE system.
