Managing Safely is a fully accredited IOSH course which focuses on training managers to apply sound management principles to health and safety issues as part of a total management strategy.
The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) offers a fully accredited course that provides candidates with an internationally recognised qualification in the management of health and safety at work. As the world’s largest health and safety organisation, IOSH Managing Safely provides in-house training that teaches managers how to understand and demonstrate their commitment to occupational health and safety standards.
Recommended for staff in a line management, supervisory or team leader role within an organisation of any size/sector, the four-day course reinforces why occupational health and safety is such an integral part of a managerial position and across an entire organisation.
Candidates will be able to recognise workplace hazards, apply a hierarchy of risk control, understand requirements of HSE legislation and recognise ways to monitor and improve performance in occupational health and safety standards across their team.
As a valuable way of enhancing your staff’s IOSH CPD (Continuing Professional Development), course content may be tailored to meet the needs of each individual business. There are 7 modules in total which cover Introducing Managing Safely, Investigating Accidents and Incidents, Human Factors, Assessing and Controlling Risk, Understanding Manager Responsibilities, Common Hazards and Measuring Performance.

IOSH Managing Safely is split into two units that consist of 22 learning hours in total – one taught module and one work-based assignment – with no prerequisites required. As part of the second unit, candidates will be required to undertake a 45-minute multiple choice test comprising 30 questions, followed by a practical workplace health and safety risk assessment which will demonstrate the application of knowledge that candidates have acquired over the course. The practical assessment must be completed no later than two weeks after passing the theory test.
