Answer:

It is hard to give you an estimate for training of 864 people especially without any information on what kind of training they need. I assume not all of them need to attend some external training and most of the training can be done with internal resources, for example, occupational safety officer or engineer can provide training on personal protective equipment.

Since the lot of people are involved and potentially lot of money, you need to define first who needs what kind of training and then to find the best cost-effective method to provide the training to your employees. When it comes to OHSAS 18001 requirements, the standard itself doesn't require any training to be conducted for requirements of the standard, you may need couple of person to attend internal auditor training for OHSAS 18001 and for the rest, you need to identify what kind of training is needed, but in most cases it will be related to operating machines and personal protective equipment.
