Course description

Who should go on Managing Safely?
Managing safely is for managers and supervisors in any sector, and any organisation. It’s designed to get managers up to speed on the practical actions they need to take to handle health and safety in their teams.

What will you get out of it?
What you need to know – and are perhaps reluctant to learn about – in a refreshingly informal way. Managing safely won’t turn people into safety experts – but it will give you the knowledge and tools to tackle the health and safety issues you are responsible for. Importantly, it brings home just why health and safety is such an essential part of your job.


  • Nationally recognised and respected certificate for managers and supervisors
  • Peace of mind offered by training that’s designed and quality-controlled by the Chartered body for health and safety professionals – IOSH
  • Flexibility -the programme can be studied in your own time to suit the business
  • Two key areas -health and safety and environmental basics – are covered

Course Syllabus

  1. 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.

    This module defines and demystifies andlsquo;risk’ and andlsquo;risk assessment’. Risk assessments and a simple scoring system are introduced, and you carry out a series of assessments.

  6. Investigating accidents and incidents
    The session starts with why accidents should be investigated, and goes on to cover why things go wrong, and how to carry out an investigation when they do.
