Competence and training are broadly included in all health and safety legislation and are critical in ensuring that your business is legally compliant. Risks must be identified, assessed and reduced to the lowest possible level. But if this is carried out by someone who lacks formal training, and is not ‘competent’ to write it, it won’t be considered fit for purpose.
As an employer, you must make sure everyone in your organisation is clear on the part they must play in keeping people safe. The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 places responsibility on employers to ensure they provide employees with training and information for the tasks they expect them to carry out in the workplace. This can be as diverse as an office environment, manufacturing facility, logistics and warehousing, or events and exhibitions to name a few.
To ensure your employees are suitably trained with the necessary skills to identify hazards and risks within your workplace, we offer IOSH Managing Safely or Working Safely courses for your employees.
For employees who manage or supervise people and risk in the workplace
The course is delivered over four days and can be split into one day each week over four weeks to allow flexibility. Our maximum number of delegates is 20 to ensure everyone gets the support they need.
We deliver our courses virtually to enable study from home or the workplace whilst still getting one-to-one interaction from a trainer. The course content includes:
For all employees

All delegates receive a certificate from the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH).
