Who should go on a Managing Safely Course?


Managing Safely is for managers & supervisors in any sector & any organisation.  It is designed to get managers up to speed on the practical actions they need to take to handle health & safety in their teams.


What will they get out of it?

Managing Safely won’t turn delegates into safety experts – but it will give them the knowledge and tools to tackle health & safety issues they are responsible for.  Importantly, it brings home just why health & safety is such an important part of the job.

Successful delegates are awarded an IOSH Managing Safely certificate.


What will their Employer get out of it.


  • Nationally recognised NVQ L2 certificated training for their managers & supervisors
  • Peace of mind offered by training that’s designed & quality controlled by the Chartered body for health & safety professionals
  • Flexibility – the course can be delivered as a 3 day Block or 1 day per week




1. Introducing managing safely

Some managers may see health & safety as an add-on to their role – even an intrusion.  The first module makes it clear that managers are accountable for their teams, & makes a persuasive case for managing safely.


2.  Assessing risks

This module defines & demystifies ‘risk’ & ‘risk assessment’.  Risk assessments & a simple scoring system are introduced, & delegates carry out a series of assessments

Here the session tackles cutting risks down, concentrating on the best techniques to control key risks, & how to choose the right method.



4.  Understanding your responsibilities

The module looks at the demands of the law, how the legal system works & introduces a health & safety management system

All the main issues any operation has to deal with are covered by this module – entrances & exits, work traffic, fire, chemicals, electricity, physical & verbal abuse, bullying, stress, noise, housekeeping & the working environment, slips, trips & falls, working at heights, computers & manual handling.


6.  Investigating accidents & incidents

The session starts with why accidents should be investigated, why things go wrong & how to carry out an investigation when they do.
