IOSH Managing Safely Refresher added to our course list

HASCAT Safety are pleased to add IOSH Managing Safely to their catalogue of health & safety training courses.

Who is the Managing Safely Refresher for?

Managing Safely refresher is a 1 day course for delegates who have already completed the full Managing Safely course. For delegates to be eligible to take the Refresher course, they must do so within 3 years of completing their full Managing Safely course.

Delegates will get to refresh their knowledge on the key parts of the full Managing Safely course and there’s a much greater emphasis on monitoring, auditing and reviewing, developed through two practical case studies.

Managing Safely Refresher covers:

  • A personal reflection from delegates on what they took away from the full Managing Safely course and a discussion on what each delegate wants to get from the Refresher course.
  • Delegates will refresh their knowledge of the key learning points from the full Managing Safely course.
  • Delegates will learn why leadership and management are important
    • their role in influencing managing safely
    • changes to legislation that affect them
    • how you can work with the Plan, Do, Check and Act model (HSE Managing for Health & Safety HSG65)
    • why effective communication is essential.
  • Putting managing safely into practice. The first practical part of the course delegates will work in pairs or small groups to review and comment on monitoring checklists based on the operations of a real business, to help them understand why monitoring and reporting are important parts of an organisation’s safety and health arrangements.
  • The second part of the practical element, which builds on the first module and focuses on the Plan, Do, Check and Act model – looking specifically at what controls need to be put in place, how to get key players on board, keeping staff up to date with developments, checking progress and identifying any issues, and assessing the overall success of your plan and the lessons learned.
  • Upon completion of an assessment successful delegates are awarded an IOSH Managing Safely certificate.

IOSH Managing Safely Training

Understanding health and safety not only helps protect your employees and is good for your business.

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.

Course outline.

Module 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.

Module 2. Assessing risks

This module defines and simplifies ‘risk’ and ‘risk assessment’. Risk assessments and a simple scoring system are introduced, and delegates carry out a series of assessments to enable them to fully understand.

Module 3. Controlling risks

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

Module 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.

Module 5. Identifying hazards

All the main issues any operation has to deal with are covered in this module – entrances and exits, vehicles, vibration, fire, chemicals, electricity, physical and verbal abuse, bullying, stress, noise, housekeeping, slips, trips and falls, working at height, computers, asbestos, confined spaces, drugs/alcohol, lighting, plant/machinery, radiation, temperature and manual handling.

Module 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.

Module 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.

Module 8. Protecting our environment

A short but effective introduction to waste and pollution. Leading into how organisations and individuals can get involved in cutting down the impacts on the environment.

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 to complete the practical assessment.
