The ‘Managing Safely’ course is for those required to manage safely and effectively in compliance with both their organisation’s policy and best practice in health and safety.
The course aims to ensure that safety requirements are appreciated by people employed as line managers, and to enable them to review their own departmental systems for safety, introducing new controls or implementing changes as appropriate to ensure safety in the workplace.
The IOSH Managing Safely course is the ideal starting point for your Health and Safety career, you will have an underpinning knowledge of the core health and safety subjects; therefore make you better prepared for your NEBOSH studies!
Occupational health and safety is concerned with the promotion of better working environments, often characterized 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 one another 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
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.
IOSH Managing Safely will help the delegates acquire the knowledge and tools needed to tackle the Health and Safety issues they are responsible for. Importantly, it brings home just why Health and Safety is such an essential part of their job.
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.
IOSH Managing Safely is for Managers and Supervisors in any sector and any organisation. It is designed to get Managers up to speed on the practical actions they need to take to handle Health and Safety in their teams. This course is designed as an introduction to Health and Safety in the workplace for Managers. It focuses on training the Manager to apply sound management principles to Safety and Health issues as part of a Total Management Strategy.
IOSH Working Safely covers…
1. Introducing Working safely
Some Managers see Health and Safety as an add on to their role and even as 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
