IOSH Managing Safely
Duration: 4 Days
Managing safely won’t turn delegates into safety experts – but it will give them the knowledge and tools to tackle the health and safety issues that they are responsible for. Importantly, it brings home just why health and safety is such an essential part of their job.
This course is unlike any other; delegates will find a practical programme, full of step by step guidance, with a sharp business focus. The highly innovative format and content is designed to engage and inspire delegates – critical to getting essential health and safety messages across.
Successful delegates are awarded an IOSH Managing Safely certificate which is a nationally recognised and respected training accreditation for managers and supervisors.
The training is designed and quality-controlled by the Chartered Body for Health and Safety Professionals and covers two key areas – health and safety and environmental basics.
