Why do I need an IOSH Managing Safely Course?
Who should go on IOSH Managing safely?
IOSH Managing safely (v5.0) is for managers and supervisors in any sector, and any organisation. It’s designed to get managers up to speed on the practical actions they need to take to handle health and safety in their teams.
What will they get out of it?
What they need to know – and are perhaps reluctant to learn about – in a refreshingly informal way.
IOSH Managing safely isn’t supposed to turn delegates into safety experts. It focuses on why health and safety is important, and how individuals can make a real difference to the wellbeing of themselves and others through changing their behaviour.
Please note we are NOT able run these courses as open courses. They are for groups of people with a minimum of 9 per course. Please do not underestimate how tough this course is. You need to be committed to achieve this IOSH qualification.
What will their employer get out of it?
- nationally recognised and respected certificated training for their managers & supervisors
- peace of mind offered by training that’s designed and quality-controlled by the Chartered body for health and safety
flexibility – the programme can be delivered in slots that suit the business
- two key areas – health and safety and environmental basics – are covered in a single programme
IOSH Managing safely: introducing a completely new approach to health and safety training
1. Introducing IOSH managing safely
Some managers may see health and safety 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 risks down, 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 health and safety management system.
5. Understanding hazards
All the main issues any operation has to deal with are covered in this module – entrances and exits, work traffic, fire, chemicals, electricity, physical and verbal abuse, bullying, stress, noise, housekeeping and the working environment, slips, trips and falls, working at height, computers and manual handling.
6. Investigating incidents
The session starts with why accidents 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 health and safety. Delegates learn how to develop basic performance indicators, and get to grips with auditing and proactive and reactive measuring.
Our IOSH managing safely training course is designed to work with your managers & supervisors to ensure that they have an understanding of why health and safety is important. Not only to them but also to the company.
Memorable and thought-provoking facts, figures and case studies help drive the points home over the whole course. Each module is backed by crystal clear examples and recognisable scenarios, and summaries reinforce the key learning points. The course includes checklists and other materials for delegates to try out and then use when they get back to work.
This is a tough and long course that can be tailored to suit your business. As health and safety law is applicable to all business’s then this really is the course for you.
