Introducing a completely new approach to health and safety training - a one-day course offering all the basics in a high impact interactive package.

This programme is designed to get delegates engaged with health and safety. The content and delivery is enjoyable and stimulating, produced to deliver vital health and safety messages. First class, jargon-free technical content based on what people need to know in practice, not off-putting legal language but clear scenarios drawn from genuine work situations to drive home practical points. Working Safely isn’t supposed to turn delegates into safety experts. It focuses on why health and safety is important, and how individuals can make a real difference to the wellbeing of themselves and others through changing their behaviour. Working Safely meets the government’s guidelines for introductory health and safety training and is a 100 per cent match to the Health and Safety Executive’s ‘passport’ syllabus. 

This course will cover:

  • Introducing working safely
  • Defining hazard and risk
  • Identifying common hazards
  • Improving safety performance

Working Safely is for people at any level, in any sector, needing grounding in the essentials of health and safety. Everyone at work should have an understanding of why they must ‘work safely’ – and this course offers exactly that.

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

  • Carry out work activities without risk to yourselves or others and understand the consequences to both the individual and their organisation if you fail to work safely
  • Identify hazards, risks and risks controls and understand the importance of risk assessment with examples of everyday use of risk assessment
  • Understand how to take appropriate workplace precautions and their importance in the working environment
  • Appreciate the importance of a health and safety management system
  • Identify lines of communication with respect to health and safety in your place of work
  • Identify safety signs and signals
  • Understand emergency, accident plans and procedures and how and who to report accidents, incidents and near misses to, in your place of work
  • Receive a nationally recognised certificate from Europe’s leading professional body

Pre-course preparation
No prior experience or preparation is required prior to the programme.

Assessment
The delegates’ understanding of health and safety basics is evaluated using multi-format questions and a hazard-spotting exercise carried out during the day’s training. On successful completion of the IOSH Working Safely course delegates will receive an IOSH accredited Certificate.
