This course aims to impart a knowledge and understanding of HSG65 and provide delegates with experience of auditing safety management systems.
On completion of the course delegates should have developed competence in the implementation of the QSA system in line with HSG65 and BS8800. Auditors will in general follow the practices identified in "Guidelines for auditing management system" BS EN ISO 19011:2018.
Delegates should have an understanding of the formulation and development of management systems in relation to policy, organising, planning, implementing, measuring performance and review.
In order to prepare for the course delegates are strongly advised to familiarise themselves with the HSE guidance document HSG65 "Successful Health and Safety Management".
In order to attain RoSPA Approved Quality Auditor status these delegates must submit an audit of their organisation to RoSPA, ideally within six months of attending the course. This audit submission will be moderated and if approved delegates will be entered on a register of Approved QSA Auditors and their organisation will be registered as a QSA company.
Those who successfully complete the course including the written exam will be awarded a RoSPA Certificate of Training.
