IOSH Working Safely
The IOSH Working Safely is a nationally recognised and respected health and safety course. The knowledge and skills that can be learned from undertaking this course are applicable to people at any level in any sector and meet the government’s guidelines for introductory health and safety training.
We provide this course as an in-house training service, this means that the training is undertaken at an agreed suitable training location such as a venue near your organisation, in a suitable room at your location or at one of our venues.
In-house training is organised based on a proposal, and is often much cheaper than training individual members of staff at public training venues.
The IOSH Working Safely course focuses on why health and safety is important and how individuals can make a real difference to the well-being of themselves and others by changing their behaviour within the workplace.
IOSH describes the course as “a high-impact programme designed to be fun and inclusive. No jargon, no legalese – just inspirational learning that’s enjoyable, stimulating and effective.”
Working Safely is an ideal course for anyone that needs a basic understanding of the essentials of health and safety, and awareness of common workplace hazards for their role or as part of their daily routine. It is suitable for employees of all levels, and provides learning in an approachable and informative way.
The course is frequently taken by:
- Employees that need awareness of health and safety issues
- Workers in the construction industry
- Independent contractors
- Volunteers who work outdoors
- Worker representatives
The course is split into 4 taught modules across the 1 day programme.
- Module 1 – Introducing working safely
- Module 2 – Definition of hazard and risk
- Module 3 – Identifying common hazards
- Module 4 – Improving safety performance
The aim of the course is to provide the essential knowledge and skills that all individuals can benefit from in order to remain safe while working in their occupation.
An IOSH ‘Working Safely’ certificate is awarded to all those who successfully complete both assessments.
The course is assessed with two short exam papers:
- A Multiple choice assessment paper
- A Hazard spotting and control measures exercise
