The IOSH Managing Safely course shows you how to put people at the heart of your health and safety work.
By keeping them safe from harm, you’ll reduce their chances of getting hurt, but also limit injury-related leave and sick days. That will give you purpose and a cause to work towards, beyond your to-do list
You can use Managing Safely as a fiscal management tool.
If your managers are asking you to cut your health and safety budget, or contribute commercially, ask to do the Managing Safely course. With the training you’ll:
- Reduce the risk of liability
- Apply processes that improve efficiency
- Appropriately control hazards based on realistic assessment, so you’re not spending unnecessarily
Considering risks from a commercial perspective is an impressive attribute and not one that your senior staff can ignore when your annual review rolls around.
Use what you learn to keep a record and try to add a value to it. If you can prove you saved your employer money, it'll lift you up and give you grounds to negotiate pay rises, promotions and awards.
