Work activities give rise to many hazards which present risks to workers and the public.
Organisations need to establish a positive health and safety culture, promoting employee involvement and commitment at all levels, and emphasizing that deviation from established health and safety standards is not acceptable.

The way employees treat risks depends on their perception of how they relate to them and the things they value. In order for employees to react to danger they must first recognise the danger.

Since Working Safely was first launched in 1993, over 200,000 people from a huge range of sectors have successfully completed the course and learned how to ‘work safely’.

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

IOSH Working Safely covers…

1. Introducing Working safely

It is not unusual for delegates coming on an introductory course to think that accidents only happen to ‘other people’. This module stresses the realities of the human suffering behind the statistics and emphasises the importance of personal responsibility.

2. Defining hazard and risk

This module puts ‘hazard’ and ‘risk’ into everyday language, and uses familiar examples to show what can happen. Importantly, it makes it clear that even something that is very simple or repeated over and over again can go wrong, with serious consequences. Focusing on the six broad hazard groups, delegates are asked to think about the hazards and risks they come across in their own work. ‘Risk assessment’ is demystified – delegates learn that we all carry out informal assessments day in, day out.

3. Identifying common hazards

All the main issues are covered in this module – entrances and exits, work traffic, fire, chemicals, electricity, physical and verbal abuse, bullying, stress, noise and the working environment, slips, trips and falls, and manual handling. Each area is backed by crystal clear examples and recognisable scenarios, and useful summaries

4. Improving safety performance

This module deals with systems and processes, making sure that any jargon is explained in easily understood terms. The session bridges the gap between management and workforce, encouraging delegates to play a part in processes that are commonly seen as just down to their manager or
supervisor. Other areas – including contract work, inspections, safe systems and permits, protective equipment, signage, emergency procedures, reporting and health checks – are all focused on from the delegate’s point of view.

5. Protecting our environment

A short but effective introduction to waste and pollution leads into a look at how organisations and individual team members can get involved in reducing environmental impacts. Memorable and thought-provoking

By the end of the training delegates will be able to :

  • Identify common hazards in the workplace.
  • Be aware that some types of injury or ill-health can occur after prolonged exposure.
  • Identify factors that constitute a satisfactory working environment.
  • Appreciate how individual actions may endanger colleagues or those passing through the workplace.

By a multiple choice examination which tests the ability to put into practice the knowledge gained during the course.
