How well recognised is IOSH Managing Safely®?
IOSH Managing Safely® is the market-leading and most recognised health and safety course targeted at managers and supervisors. It has existed for over 25 years and its content is regularly updated. Every training provider must cover the same content. However, there are large variations in the quality of the courses provided.
How is the IOSH Managing Safely® course assessed?
There are two assessments, both of which are submitted completely online.
1. A 45 minute multiple choice assessment.
2. A workplace project, where you carry out a short risk assessment.
Why do you offer a FREE Managing People Effectively course with all IOSH Managing Safely® licences?
In our view, you can't manage safely if you don't know how to manage people. Whilst the core content of the Managing Safely® is very comprehensive on health and safety topics, it does lack any useful information on the necessary soft skills such as how to manage and communicate with people and how to win them over. We believe these soft skills are just as important as the safety knowledge, if you want your people to manage safely.
