Last year client faced OHSAS 18001 1st surveillance audit. This year the client is upgrading to iso 45001. What should this year’s audit be called- 1) iso 45001 certification audit or 2) iso 45001 2nd surveillance audit?
If you are transitioning from OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001 during this year’s audit, then this is an ISO 45001 certification audit even if you were partially through your 3-year cycle on OHSAS 18001. This audit will confirm all of ISO 45001 implementation, and is therefore not the reduced audit you will see in a surveillance audit.
