IOSH Managing Safely in the Exhibition & Event Industry

Accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), the Managing Safely in the Exhibition and Event Industry course is a well-recognised and respected programme of training.

This course is ideal for floor managers, duty managers, organisers and others with operational responsibility, or safety input for exhibitions/events/shows. Part-time health and safety staff, safety representatives and graduates have also found it to be invaluable in providing essential skills for putting health and safety theory into practice.

The programme includes overnight project work and concludes with a multi-choice examination. Delegates are required to complete a workplace-based project, which forms part of the overall assessment and must be returned to us within 14 days. A minimum pass rate of 70% is required for certification. An IOSH Managing Safely certificate is awarded to all those who attend the course and successfully complete the written and practical assessments.

As with all our courses, this course can be tailored to suit organisational requirements, for instance the course can be spread over a convenient time span, such as over four consecutive days, or one / two days per week.
