This course is unlike any other; delegates will find a practical programme, full of step by step guidance, and with a sharp business focus. The highly innovative format and content is designed to engage and inspire delegates – critical to getting essential health and safety messages across.

Successful delegates are awarded an IOSH Managing Safely certificate, a nationally recognised and respected training accreditation for managers and supervisors. The training is designed and quality-controlled by the Chartered body for health and safety professionals.

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’re responsible for. Importantly, it brings home just why health and safety is such an essential part of their job.

The course will cover:

  • Introducing managing safely
  • Assessing risks
  • Controlling risks
  • Understanding your responsibilities
  • Identifying hazards
  • Investigating accidents and incidents
  • Measuring performance
  • Protecting our environment

Managing safely is designed 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.

By the end of this course delegates will be able to:

  • Apply basic management principles and practices to health and safety issues as part of a total management strategy
  • Set achievable health and safety objectives as well as plan and implement courses of action to achieve those objectives
  • Recognise health and safety hazards present in the workplace
  • Carry out and record basic assessments of the risks associated with workplace hazards, and recommend suitable control measures
  • Take account of risks arising from ergonomic factors
  • Ensure that adequate information, training and supervision is provided for employees
  • Investigate an accident or incident involving injury or damage to determine the causes and take appropriate actions

Pre-course preparation

No prior experience or preparation is required prior to the programme.


Delegates understanding of health and safety basics is evaluated using multi-format questions and a risk assessment  project, both of which must be completed to gain certification.
