IOSH Managing Safely

IOSH Managing Safely provides managers and supervisors with the knowledge and skills needed to manage health and safety within their teams.

The British Safety Council’s IOSH Managing Safely comprises a 3-day exercise whereby students are challenged to set up a new business and put in place the measures required to ensure the health, safety and welfare of employees and others.

The exercise delivers the Managing Safely syllabus in an interactive and engaging way – no ‘death by PowerPoint’. Students are immersed in a realistic workplace scenario and are faced with a series of team challenges.

The student-centred nature of the exercise allows learners to draw on existing knowledge and instincts. The tutor acts as facilitator and adviser, rather than ‘lecturer’.

This innovative approach not only prepares students for their IOSH Managing Safely assessment, but equips them to play an active role in managing health and safety in their own workplaces.

Upon successful completion of the course and assessment, students are awarded a Managing Safely certificate from the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) – the world’s largest health and safety membership organisation. This certificate offers a distinct advantage to anyone holding, or seeking, a managerial or supervisory position.

There are three ways to study – at a training centre, in your workplace or online.
