    The IOSH Managing Safely is a 3 day course covering the safety and health management basics in a high-impact interactive package. Using clear scenarios that managers can relate to the course contains first-class technical content, based on what delegates need to know in practice, no jargon or off-putting legal language.

    The course is targeted at managers and supervisors in any sector, and any organisation. It is designed to get managers up-to-speed on the practical actions they need to take to handle safety and health in their teams.

    Two key areas are covered:

    • Safety and health
    • Environmental basics

    Expected end results are:

    • Fewer hours lost due to sickness and accidents, resulting in greater productivity
    • Improved company-wide safety awareness culture and appreciation for safety measures
    • Pro-active staff involvement to improve the workplace
    • Enhanced reputation within the supply chain

    The Managing Safely Course Covers:

    1. Introducing Managing Safely
      Some managers may see safety and health as an add-on to their role – even an intrusion. The first module makes it clear that managers are accountable for their teams, and makes a persuasive case for managing safely.

    2. Assessing Risks
      This module defines and demystifies ‘risk’ and ‘risk assessment’. Risk assessments and a simple scoring system are introduced, and delegates carry out a series of assessments.

    3. Controlling Risks
      Here the session tackles cutting down risks, concentrating on the best techniques to control key risks, and how to choose the right method.

    4. Understanding Responsibilities
      This module looks at the demands of the law and how the legal system works, and introduces a safety and health management system.

    5. Understanding Hazards
      All the main issues any operation has to deal with are covered in this module – aggression and violence, asbestos, bullying, chemicals, computer workstations, confined spaces, drugs and alcohol, electricity, fire, getting in and out, heights, housekeeping, lighting, manual handling, noise, plant and machinery, radiation, slips and trips, stress, temperature, vehicles and transport and vibration.

    6. Investigating Incidents
      The session starts with why incidents should be investigated, and goes on to cover why things go wrong, and how to carry out an investigation when they do.

    7. Measuring Performance
      This module explains how checking performance can help to improve safety and health. Delegates learn how to develop basic performance indicators, and get to grips with auditing and proactive and reactive measuring.

    8. Protecting Our Environment
      This module introduces business sustainability to explain how sustainable development can meet present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.

    IOSH is the Chartered body for health and safety professionals. With more than 44,000 members in over 120 countries, they are the world’s largest professional health and safety organisation.

  • IOSH Working Safely | 1 Day | £115 Open or Close

    Working safely is for people at any level, in any sector, needing a grounding in the essentials of safety and health. Everyone at work should have an understanding of why they must ‘work safely’ – and this course offers exactly that.

    The course offers same day training and assessments with no need for follow-on tests on separate days.

    The fun one-day course offers all the basics in a high-impact interactive package filled with jargon-free technical content based on what people need to know in practice, not off-putting legal language. safety and health and environmental basics are covered in a single self-contained session.

    The working safely course meets the government’s guidelines for introductory safety and health training and is a 100% match to the Health and Safety Executive’s ‘passport’ syllabus.

    If you work in a construction labouring occupation the IOSH Working Safely course is recognised by the CITB as a routeway to the CITB Operatives Health, Safety and Environment test required for the CSCS Green Labourer Card.

    The Working Safely Course Covers:

    1. Introducing Working Safely
      It’s not unusual for delegates coming on an introductory course to think that accidents only happen to ‘other people’. This module stresses the realities of the human suffering behind the statistics and emphasises the importance of personal responsibility.

    2. Defining Hazard and Risk
      This module puts ‘hazard’ and ‘risk’ into everyday language, and uses familiar examples to show what can happen. Importantly, it makes it clear that even something that is very simple or repeated over and over again can go wrong, with serious consequences. Focusing on the six broad hazard groups, delegates are asked to think about the hazards and risks they come across in their own work. ‘Risk assessment’ is demystified – delegates learn that we all carry out informal assessments day in, day out.

    3. Identifying Common Hazards
      All the main issues are covered in this module – entrances and exits, work traffic, fire, chemicals, electricity, physical and verbal abuse, bullying, stress, noise and the working environment, slips, trips and falls, and manual handling. Each area is backed by crystal-clear examples and recognisable scenarios, and useful summaries reinforce the key learning points.

    4. Improving Safety Performance
      This module deals with systems and processes, making sure that any jargon is explained in easily understood terms. The session bridges the gap between management and workforce, encouraging delegates to play a part in processes that are commonly seen as just down to their manager or supervisor. Other areas – including contract work, inspections, safe systems and permits, protective equipment, signage, emergency procedures, reporting and health checks – all focus on the delegate’s point of view.

    5. Protecting our environment
      A short but effective introduction to waste and pollution leads into a look at how organisations and individual team members can get involved in reducing environmental impacts. Memorable and thought-provoking facts and figures help drive the points home.

    IOSH is the Chartered body for health and safety professionals. With more than 44,000 members in over 120 countries, they are the world’s largest professional health and safety organisation.
