How do you manage health and safety?

25 Jan 2016

Every manager should have an understanding of their responsibilities when it comes to health and safety. Our IOSH "Managing Safely" training may help.

This course is ideal for getting managers up-to-speed on the skills they need to tackle safety and health issues in the workplace.

A practical programme, full of step-by-step guidance, Managing Safely has a hands on, jargon-free format that engages and inspires. The programme has helped many managers, supervisors and others across the University understand how they can meet their responsibilities and implement University policy. 

The programme runs one day per week over four consecutive weeks in the Sackville Street Building. 

Each module is backed by crystal clear examples and recognisable scenarios which can be tailored to your working environment. 

Benefits of completing IOSH Managing Safely: 

  • Fewer staff hours may be lost due to sickness and accidents.
  • Active staff involvement to improve the workplace.
  • Improved University wide safety-awareness culture and appreciation for safety measures already in place.
  • Nationally recognised and respected Safety Management certification for managers and supervisors.

Who should apply for this course?

Anyone with responsibility for the health and safety of others. This includes managers, supervisors and any aspiring managers or supervisors (especially those undertaking other management and leadership training).
