Ways to Learn

Course Overview

Offering a new approach to health and safety training for non-managers, the IOSH Working Safely course offers all the health and safety basics in a high impact interactive package.

The course is designed to get you engaged with health and safety. 

IOSH Working Safely isn’t supposed to turn delegates into safety experts, but focuses on why health and safety is important, and how individuals can make a real difference to the well-being 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. 

*Rated 4.8 out of 5 by learners on Coursecheck, TSW Training has been a trusted and established training provider of choice for 56 years.

Who is this Course For?

Working Safely is for people at any level, in any sector, needing a 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.

No prior experience or preparation is required prior to the programme. It’s great to start thinking about health and safety in your organisation and the things you see around you. This will all be helpful for your learning.

Make an enquiry and one of our dedicated Learning Advisors will contact you to listen to your needs and help you find the right solutions.

What Does This Course Cover?

The content and delivery are 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. 

The course covers the following modules:

  1. Introducing working safely
  2. Defining hazard and risk
  3. Identifying common hazards
  4. Improving safety performance

Learning Outcomes

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

How is this Course Assessed?

Your 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 you will receive an IOSH accredited certificate.

“We know assessments can be challenging, but our expert training team will be on hand to support you with any concerns and make sure you are ready to sit the assessment.

Don’t worry – we’ll make sure you have everything you need!” – Stuart Davies, Managing Director at TSW Training
