Many organisations are adopting ISO standards. Each standard has a requirement for the organisation to demonstrate risk management. But what do the standards expect and how as risk leaders can we ensure that risks identified during the ISO process continue to be managed, ensuring that the achievement and adoption of ISO isn’t a ‘tick box’ exercise. 

On this virtual course, we will look at how risk is identified and managed in two of the more popular standards - ISO9001 and ISO45001, and provide delegates with some of the tools and techniques to manage risk within the organisation. We will look at the Annex SL structure that is common to these standards and understand how aspects can be integrated providing a more effective and efficient management system.

Learning outcomes

Delegates will gain an understanding of risk management in relation to ISO standards, and how the achievement of ISO should compliment any work conducted within and organisation and not contradict or conflict. We will identify ways to ensure that ISO is not a 'tick box' exercise but can add value to the organisation that is implementing and adpoting the standard.

By the end of the course you will be able to: 

  • Understand the structure of an ISO standard, and why effective risk management is critical to successful certification. 
  • Gain an understanding of how risk is managed in ISO standards. 
  • Identify where risk may come from (external and internal influences). 
  • Apply different methods to identify risk. 
  • Effectively capture and communicate risks.
