An ideal introduction to safety responsibilities for employees in all fields
The IOSH Working Safely online course focuses on best practice rather than legislation in health and safety within a workplace, arming you with valuable and practical safety information.
It is designed to give students a comprehensive grounding in why health and safety is important, and how changing your behaviour can make a difference to the wellbeing of yourself and others.
Please note that as of April 2020, the IOSH Working Safely course is no longer accepted as a route to Green Card qualification by the CSCS. Instead, it includes safety lessons which are broadly applicable to all workplaces.
