Do you know:

  • Everyone has health and safety responsibilities in law. What are yours?
  • Not everything needs to be risk assessed nor do all assessments need to be written. What do you need to assess and record?
  • There are many ways to carry out risk assessments. How many ways are there and which are best for what?
  • Employers are not required to eliminate all risks. How far do you need to go?
  • Organisations are required to have a health and safety management system in place. What should be in it?
  • All incidents, including near misses, need to be investigated. How can you avoid this taking up your whole working day(s)?
  • Many organisations measure their safety performance by counting how many people they have hurt during the last 12 months. How can you measure performance in such a way that it avoids people getting hurt in the first place?

IOSH Managing Safely Course Details

This health and safety training course is intended for managers and supervisors at every level, in any sector and in any organisation. It has been designed to help people who have responsibility to manage health and safety in their undertakings. In addition to the diverse health and safety content this course also delivers a module on protecting the environment.

Many organisations delegate health and safety responsibilities to people within their company. Unless these people are competent in the management of health and safety they cannot be expected to posses the knowledge required to ensure a safe and legally compliant workplace. Nor can they be held accountable. This course helps to deliver the health and safety competencies required by managers.

On successful completion of this course learners will be able to:

  1. Describe the key reasons to manage health and safety in the workplace
  2. Define the key terms relating to health and safety
  3. Identify how the law can have an impact on health and safety in the workplace
  4. Describe how to assess, reduce and control risk in the workplace
  5. Identify workplace hazards and risks, their impact and how to manage them
  6. Identify how to evaluate and respond to an incident
