Benefits of the IOSH Managing Safely course
On successful completion of the assessment, delegates will be awarded a certificate from the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) – a nationally recognised and respected industry body. At the end of the training participants will understand:
- Why is it important to manage safely
- Why investigate accidents and incidents
- How does human failure contribute to the cause of accidents
- What is a risk assessment
- How to recognise and manage common hazards
An IOSH Working Safely or Managing Safely certificate is valid for life. However, it is recommended that those holding a Managing Safely certificate should undertake a refresher course within three years of completing their training. Learning with the British Safety Council enables students to benefit from our wealth of experience acquired over 60 years. During this time, we’ve educated people all over the world and have developed expert teaching methods to ensure a first-class learning experience.

The IOSH Managing Safely training course is designed to help team leaders, supervisors, managers and heads of department effectively manage their teams’ health and safety.
What does it cover?
Delegates will learn about the importance of health and safety – and what you will need to know in a real-world situation at work. The IOSH Managing Safely course gives detailed step-by-step guidance without jargon or off-putting legal language. There are clear scenarios to which managers can relate, and high quality technical content that’s based on real situations.
The course takes three days and covers how to carry out risk assessments quickly and effectively, how get to grips with auditing and measuring, and discover methods to identify and control hazards. Delegates will also gain a detailed knowledge of the law and how the legal system works regarding health and safety, along with steps they can take to protect the environment in their day-to-day work.
The course is arranged in seven modules:
- Introducing managing safely
- Assessing risks
- Controlling risks
- Understanding your responsibilities
- Identifying hazards
- Investigating accidents and incidents
- Measuring performance.
Assessment depends on how you choose to study.
If you sit the course at one of our training centres or in your own workplace, there is an end-of-course assessment of 30 multi-format questions. There’s also a project to be completed within two weeks of the end of the course.
If you study online, the course, assessment and project must be completed within five months of registration.
Successful candidates receive an IOSH certificate, valid for three years.
