This course is designed for those who have health and safety responsibilities within an organisation, such as managers and supervisors. It’s designed to get managers up to speed on the practical actions they need to take to handle safety and health in their teams.
The course includes written and practical assessments with the successful delegate receiving a certificate from IOSH.
Introducing Managing Safely – Some managers may see health and safety as an add on to their role – even an intrusion. The first module makes it clear that managers are accountable for their teams and makes a persuasive case for managing safely.
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.
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.
Understanding your Responsibilities – This module looks at the demands of the law and how the legal system works, and for those who do not have strict guidelines or laws, there is guidance and placeholders to fill with relevant information and introduces a health and safety management system.
Identifying Hazards – All the main issues any operation has to deal with are covered in this module – aggression and violence, asbestos, bullying, chemicals, computer workstations, confined spaces, drugs and alcohol, electricity, fire, getting in and out, heights, housekeeping, lighting, manual handling, noise, plant and machinery, radiation, slips and trips, stress, temperature, vehicles and transport, and vibration.
Investigating Accidents and Incidents – The session starts with why incidents should be investigated, and goes on to cover why things go wrong, and how to carry out an investigation when they do.
Measuring Performance – This module explains how checking performance can help to improve health and safety. Delegates learn how to develop basic performance indicators, get to grips with auditing and proactive and reactive measuring.
