  • Improving safety performance

Successful delegates are awarded an IOSH Working Safely certificate and/or passport card.

IOSH Managing Safely can be booked separately – please contact us

Managing Safely is a 3 day course unlike any other safety and health training. You’ll find a practical programme full of step-by-step guidance, and with a sharp business focus. But you’ll also find that the highly innovative format and content engages and inspires delegates – critical to getting essential safety and health messages across.

Who is Managing safely for?

Managing safely is for managers and supervisors in any sector, and any organisation. It’s designed to get managers up-to-speed on the practical actions they need to take to handle safety and health in their teams.

What will delegates get out of it?

Delegates will learn what they need to know – and are perhaps reluctant to learn about – in a refreshingly informal way.

Managing safely won’t turn delegates into safety experts – but it will give them the knowledge and tools to tackle the safety and health issues they’re responsible for. Importantly, it brings home just why safety and health is such an essential part of their job.

Successful delegates are awarded an IOSH Managing Safely certificate.
