IOSH Managing Safely

We have places available on the 4 day IOSH Managing Safely course to be held in Leighton Buzzard. The cost is ONLY £550 per person plus VAT, this includes all IOSH fees, certification and refreshments. 

Course dates: 14th & 15th, 21st and 22nd March 2013.

Apart from good 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.

Course outline:

1. Introducing managing safely

Some managers may see health and safety as an add-on to their role –even an intrusion. The first module makes it clear that managers are accountable for their teams, and makes a persuasive case for managing safely.

 2. Assessing risks

This module defines and demystifies ‘risk’ and ‘risk assessment’. Risk assessments and a simple scoring system are introduced, and delegates carry out a series of assessments.

 3. Controlling risks

Here the session tackles cutting risks down, concentrating on the best techniques to control key risks, and how to choose the right method.

 4. Understanding your responsibilities

This module looks at the demands of the law and how the legal system works, and introduces a health and safety management system.

 5. Identifying hazards

All the main issues any operation has to deal with are covered in this module – entrances and exits, work traffic, fire, chemicals, electricity, physical and verbal abuse, bullying, stress, noise, housekeeping and the working environment, slips, trips and falls, working at height, computers and manual handling.

 6. Investigating accidents and incidents

The session starts with why accidents should be investigated, and goes on to cover why things go wrong, and how to carry out an investigation when they do.

 7. Measuring performance

This module explains how checking performance can help to improve health and safety. Delegates learn how to develop basic performance indicators, and get to grips with auditing and proactive and reactive measuring.

 8. Protecting our environment

A short but effective introduction to waste and pollution leads into a look at how organisations and individual managers can get involved in cutting down environmental impacts.

Delegates who successfully complete the written and practical assessments at the end of the course are awarded an IOSH certificate in Managing Safely.

Written assessment is “closed book” and consists of a mixture of multiple choice and short written answers – held on the last day of the course.

Practical assessment – Delegates chose an area in their organisation on which to conduct the assessment. They have 2 weeks from the last day of the course to submit their practical assessment.

We can also provide closed cousres at your premises or other venues.

HSE issues first Fee For Intervention Invoices

The HSE has issued the first Fee For Intervention (FFI) invoices for the first two months of its operation.

The invoices total £727,644.81 and were for 1st October to 30th November 2012 generated from 1,419 invoices.

The figure is lower than expected based upon the HSE’s estimate that the scheme would generate £37 million over the year. This has been put down to inspectors still dealing with cases that started before the introduction of the scheme and the scheme being new.

The HSE state that all FFI will be in accordance with their Enforcement Policy and Enforcement management Model and that they have no targets for the level of receipts from FFI.
