The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) is the world-leading chartered body for health and safety professionals.
The IOSH Managing Safely course is often incorrectly referred to as IOSH Managing Safety, but this is really a bit academic because either of the expressions IOSH Managing Safely or IOSH Managing Safety are both good references for a course, which is an excellent primer for anybody that wants to learn more about managing safely in the work place. This course is, however, geared to managers who have day to day health and safety responsibilities in the areas they control. Those seeking a qualification to become a health and safety manager within their organisation would probably benefit more from a NEBOSH certification course.
The IOSH Managing Safely course has a flexible 3 day format.
The content of the IOSH Managing Safely course includes:
- An Introduction to Managing safely
- Assessing risks
- Controlling health and safety risks
- Understanding responsibilities in managing safely
- Identifying hazards
- Investigating accidents and incidents
- Measuring performance
- Protecting the environment
The IOSH Managing Safely course is accredited by the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). The Institute of Occupational Safety and Health claim the position of Europe's leading body for health and safety professionals. They are an independent and not-for-profit organisation, aiming to regulate and steer the profession, maintaining standards and providing impartial, authoritative guidance on health and safety issues.
