IOSH Managing Safely - course outline.

This 4 / 5 day course can be delivered in a block or over a number of weeks.  It covers the following subject areas:

 1. Introducing managing safely

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

2. Assessing risks

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

3. Controlling risks

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

4. Understanding your responsibilities

This module looks at the demands of the law and how the legal system works, and introduces a health and safety management system.

5. Identifying hazards

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

6. Investigating accidents and incidents

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

7. Measuring performance

This module explains how checking performance can help to improve health and safety. Delegates learn how to develop basic performance indicators, and get to grips with auditing and proactive and reactive Measuring.

8. Protecting our environment

A short but effective introduction to waste and pollution leads into a look at how organisations and individual managers can get involved in cutting down environmental impacts. Thought-provoking facts and figures help drive the points home.

IOSH Managing Safely FAQ

Who should go on Managing


Managing safely is for managers and

supervisors in any sector, and any

organisation. It’s designed to get

managers up to speed on the practical

actions they need to take to handle

health and safety in their teams.

What will they get out of it?

What they need to know – and are

perhaps reluctant to learn about – in a

refreshingly informal way.

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

they’re responsible for. Importantly, it

brings home just why health and

safety is such an essential part of

their job.

Successful delegates are awarded an

IOSH Managing safely certificate.

What will their employer get out

of it?
