IOSH Working Safely Synopsis
The IOSH Working Safely course is aimed at all employees, particularly non-managerial staff who have had little or no health and safety training. This course provides grounding in the essentials of health and safety. Everyone at work should have an understanding of why they must work safely and this course offers exactly that.
- Introducing IOSH Working Safely – Stresses the realities of human suffering behind statistics and emphasises the importance of personal responsibility.
- Defining Hazard and Risk – Using familiar examples to define hazard and risk in every day language and show what can happen. Even simple or repetitive things can go wrong with serious consequences. Delegates are asked to think about hazards and risks they come across in their own work using 6 broad hazard groups.
- Identifying Common Hazards – Use of clear examples to demonstrate the main issues such as entrances and exits, work traffic, fire, chemicals, electricity, physical and verbal abuse, bullying, stress, noise, slips, trips and falls, and manual handling.
- Improving Safety Performance – This module deals with systems and processes and tries to bridge the gap between management and the workforce, encouraging the delegates to play a part in the processes that are commonly just seen as down to their line manager or supervisor. Also includes contract work, inspections, safe systems and permits, PPE, signage, emergency procedures, reporting and health checks.
Delegates who successfully complete the written and practical assessment can choose between a nationally recognised certificate or passport card, which will be awarded by the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health.
