Understanding health and safety not only helps protect your employees and is good for your business.
Apart from good, sensible health and safety advice it is important that your staff play their part in the process. To do this they need the knowledge and tools to tackle the health and safety issues for which they are responsible.
For small business owner, managers and supervisors there is the IOSH Managing Safety awareness course. It’s designed and quality controlled by IOSH the Chartered body for health and safety professionals. This is a 4-day course leading to a nationally recognised and respected certificate for successful delegates.
