IOSH Health & Safety Training

Handsam Ltd is an approved IOSH training centre and we offer two IOSH courses: Managing Safely and Working Safely.

 

The IOSH Managing Safely Course is a formal, national qualification for managers and supervisors. It is designed to ensure managers understand the actions they need to take to handle health and safety in their organisation.

Managing Safely won’t turn delegates into safety experts but it will give them the knowledge and tools to tackle the health and safety issues they are responsible for. Importantly, it emphasises why health and safety is such an essential part of their job.

 

Handsam’s delivery of this two-day course is tailored specifically to the Education sector.

Benefits to the Employer

• Nationally recognised and respected certificated training for their managers

• Peace of mind offered by training that is designed and quality-controlled by the chartered body for health and safety professionals

• Minimum disruption to working days and shifts - the four day programme includes the assessment so there is no need to free up further time for a test after the course

• Two key areas - health and safety and environmental basics - are covered in a single self-contained session

• Education sector examples are utilised throughout to provide a relevant context to the course

Managing Safely Modules

• Introducing Managing Safely - some managers may see Health and Safety as an add-on to their roles. The first module makes it clear that managers are accountable for their teams, as well as making a persuasive case for managing safely

 

• Assessing risk - this module defines and demystifies the phrases ‘risk’, ‘hazard’ and ‘risk assessment’. Delegates also carry out a series of mock risk assessments

 

• Controlling risks - this module covers how to reduce risks through the use of suitable and sufficient control measures

 

• Understanding your responsibilities - this module looks at the demands of the law and how the legal system works. It also introduces the concept of a health and safety management system

 

• Identifying hazards - this includes physical & verbal abuse, stress, noise, slips, trips & falls, working at height, use of computers and manual handling

 

• Investigating accidents and incidents - this session starts with why accidents should be investigated, 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

The IOSH Working Safely Course is a formal, national qualification designed for staff at any level who need a grounding in the basic essentials of health and safety.

 

The course focuses on why health and safety is important, and how individuals can make a real difference to their own wellbeing as well as their colleagues'. It also improves their awareness of health and safety and enables them to positively influence the behaviour of others within the school.
