The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) Managing Safely course has been run for the first time at Harper Adams University and received great feedback from participants.
One attendee said: “The course was a really good grounding in health and safety.
“I will use the information I learnt in my day-to-day role, and would recommend it to anyone with health and safety responsibilities.”
Another said: “I thoroughly enjoyed the course and would recommend it 100 per cent to others. It provided relevant and extremely useful information for anyone who needs health and safety knowledge for their role.
“The learning materials were concise and fun and the trainer made understanding the concepts easy.”
The four day Managing Safely course is designed for anyone with responsibility for health and safety, such as managers and supervisors.
Topics covered during the course include: assessing risks; gaining knowledge of the law and how the legal system works relating to health and safety; and investigating incidents in the workplace.
Participants complete two assessments which are designed to evaluate their understanding of basic health and safety.
Those who successfully pass these assessments receive a nationally recognised IOSH Managing Safely certificate.
Further training dates are being organised.
