Working Safely is a one day training course offering jargon-free health and safety basics. The animated graphics and presentation materials make it fun and engaging. Successful delegates are awarded the IOSH Working Safely certificate and/or IOSH Safety passport.
This course is designed for people at any level in any sector, and meets the government’s guidelines for introductory health and safety training. It is recognised by CSCS as a Level 1 Award in Health & Safety in a construction environment.
IOSH – Working Safely training will cover:
- Introducing Working Safely – It’s not unusual for delegates coming on to the course to think that accidents only happen to ‘other people’.
- Defining Hazard and Risk – Puts ‘Hazard’ and ‘Risk’ into everyday language, and uses familiar examples. It makes it clear that even something very simple or repeated over again can go wrong, with serious consequences. Focusing on the six broad hazard groups, delegates are asked to think about the hazards and risks they come across in their work. ‘Risk assessment’ is demystified.
- Identifying Common Hazards – All the main issues are covered – entrances and exits, work traffic, fire, chemicals, electricity, physical and verbal abuse, bullying, stress, noise and the working environment, slips, trips and falls, and manual handling.
- Improving Safety Performance – This module deals with systems and processes, making sure that any jargon is explained. The session bridges the gap between management and workforce, encouraging delegates to play a part in processes that are commonly seen as down to their manager or supervisor. Other areas – contract work, inspections, safe systems and permits, protective equipment, signage, emergency procedures, reporting and health checks – are all focused on.
