IOSH Managing Safely is a course offered by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), which is based in the UK. The course is designed for managers and supervisors in all types of organizations and industries, who are responsible for managing health and safety in the workplace.
The IOSH Managing Safely course covers the key principles of health and safety management, including identifying hazards, assessing risks, controlling risks, and investigating accidents and incidents. It also covers relevant UK legislation and how to communicate effectively on health and safety matters.
The course is usually delivered over three to four days and includes both classroom-based learning and practical exercises. At the end of the course, participants are required to complete a written assessment to demonstrate their understanding of the material.
Successful completion of the IOSH Managing Safely course leads to the award of an IOSH Managing Safely certificate, which is recognized as a valuable qualification by employers in the UK and internationally. The course is also a useful stepping stone for those who wish to progress to more advanced health and safety qualifications, such as the NEBOSH General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety.
