Internationally recognised and respected IOSH licensed training.

Occupational health and safety is concerned with the promotion of better working environments, often characterised by motivated workers and competent managers, and preventing foreseeable losses to individuals and organisations.

According to the Health and Safety Commission (HSC), most health and safety failures are due to poor management and ignorance of good practice, rather than direct malicious intent.

Health and safety is an essential part of a manager’s role, irrespective of their primary function. Everybody at work is responsible for health and safety performance by taking reasonable care for the health and safety of themself and other people who may be affected by their acts and omissions.

Managers can delegate responsibilities for health and safety practice, but, within their scope of control, they cannot delegate their legal accountability.

Managers need to have a sufficient understanding of their responsibilities if they are to manage health and safety effectively.

Who is the course for?

IOSH Managing Safely is a basic course in health and safety designed to give managers and supervisors from all types of organisation an understanding of how to deal with health and safety issues in the workplace.

Many organisations choose IOSH Managing Safely for their safety staff and employee representatives to provide a consistent understanding of health and safety issues so they can assist their managers and carry out their functions effectively.

This course is also an ideal introductory course for individuals wishing to pursue a career in health and safety.
