IOSH Managing Safely

Approved by the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH), the Managing Safely course is a well-recognised and respected programme of training.

The course has been designed for managers and supervisors in any sector and any organisation, and gives delegates all the information they need to help them handle health and safety in their teams. The flexible new high impact programme covers all the main health and safety issues, and includes a session tackling the environment too.

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 course also acts as an ideal foundation course for those wishing to progress onto the NEBOSH General Certificate in Occupational Safety & Health course.

Course outline / 8 modules

  • Introducing Managing Safely
  • Assessing risks
  • Controlling risks
  • Understanding your responsibilities
  • Identifying hazards
  • Investigating accidents and incidents
  • Measuring performance
  • Protecting our environment

On conclusion of the course delegates will have improved knowledge and understanding of health and safety management, and will be able to manage their organisational health and safety issues in a more proactive and practical way.

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.
