Who is IOSH Managing Safely right for?
IOSH Managing Safely is a qualification giving managers and supervisors from all industries the information they need in order to help them handle health and safety in their teams. The IOSH course is tailored to meet the exact needs of organisations, and will provide candidates with a qualification in health and safety and quality management from a globally recognised safety body.
Candidates who successfully complete the written and practical assessments at the end of the course will not only go home full of knowledge, but with a sense of why health and safety is an essential part of their job. They will also be awarded an IOSH certificate in Managing Safely.
The IOSH Managing Safely qualification is ideal training for multiple roles within the industry, including site supervisors, health and safety consultants, project managers, construction managers and directors. It’s a nationally recognised and respected qualification.
What does the course consist of?
The recently updated programme is flexible, and covers all of the main quality management and health and safety issues in a workplace, like fire risk assessment and asbestos management. The IOSH course will also include a session tackling environmental factors. Throughout the programme we will provide step-by-step guidance with a sharp business focus. The modules covered are as follows:
- Introducing managing safely
This section ensures managers understand that health and safety isn’t just an add on to their role; they are actually accountable for their teams.
- Assessing risks
The second section defines and demystifies “risk” and “risk assessment”. During this section, managers will learn and use a simple risk scoring system.
- Controlling risks
In section three, the session will cover how to cut risks down. This will be focused on the best techniques to control key risks and how to choose the correct method.
- Understanding your responsibilities
In this section, managers will look at the demands of the law and how the legal system works. For example, as a site supervisor, where would your health and safety responsibilities lie.
- Identifying hazards
During this section, all the main issues in which any operation has to deal with are covered. For example, entrances, exits, work traffic, fire risk assessment, chemicals and electricity.
- Investigating accidents and incidents
This section covers why accidents should be investigated, why things go wrong and how to carry out an investigation when they do.
- Measuring performance
Section seven explains how checking performance can help improve health and safety. Managers will learn how to develop basic performance indicators and quality management.
- Protecting our environment
Section eight is a short explanation of how organisations and individual managers can get involved in cutting down environmental impacts.
