3 Reasons Your Staff Should Take IOSH Managing Safely Refresher

Regardless of how big or small your business, prioritising health and safety in the workplace is an excellent way to reduce risk, increase productivity and promote leadership

December 2018

Regardless of how big or small your business is, prioritising health and safety in the workplace is an excellent way to reduce risk, increase productivity and promote leadership. IOSH is a world leader of certified safety and health training that is highly respected in all industries and is the perfect tool for companies to use to up skill their employees in safety management.

The IOSH Managing Safely course offers companies the chance to gain an internationally recognised certification that promotes best practice in health and safety in the workplace through an effective safety management system.

With no minimum qualifications or experience needed, managers and people with team responsibilities can undertake the IOSH Managing Safely course in a number of flexible ways including online, virtual and classroom based training with a qualified tutor.

Having gained the IOSH Managing Safely certification, staff will have a full understanding of their responsibilities in the workplace and will be able to better anticipate, evaluate and manage risk.

With fewer hours lost to sickness or accidents, companies can maximise productivity as well as protect their workforce.  A great achievement with dual benefits for both staff and employer!

The IOSH Managing Safely Refresher Course

 

Although this globally recognised certification doesn’t expire, IOSH recommends that a short refresher course is taken every three years to renew confidence and keep knowledge up to date. The IOSH Managing Safely Refresher is a short online course that takes just 6 hours to complete and consists of 6 key modules.

 

Let’s take a closer a look at why this refresher course comes so highly recommended by IOSH and the additional benefits that it will bring to your business and staff.
 

1. Peace of Mind

 

The syllabus of the IOSH Managing Safely certificate is updated every few years to reflect changes in legislation, management systems and best practice in health and safety. As a result of this, it is crucial that businesses have peace of mind that they are training and updating staff with the correct knowledge.

What’s more important, is by demonstrating that their IOSH Managing Safely certification is regularly renewed – companies can demonstrate to their shareholders and supply chain that they are committed to a safe, productive and risk managed workplace.

The latest IOSH Managing Safely Refresher Syllabus can be found here.
 

2. Renewed Confidence with PDCA Cycle

 

Because the IOSH Managing Safely Refresher course reviews the key parts of the full IOSH Managing Safely course, managers and supervisory staff can renew their knowledge of the Plan - Do - Check - Act (PDCA Cycle) management safety system. The PDCA Cycle will enable them to:

  • look back at what they have previously learnt,
  • re-evaluate the crucial role they play as leaders in the workplace and
  • apply this with renewed confidence.

Knowing that an employer has invested in their continued personal development will invigorate managers and supervisory staff – making them feel valued and more likely to operate to the highest level of performance.


3. Improved Productivity

 

By empowering staff with the latest best practices in health and safety and a chance to renew their understanding of the Plan - Do - Check - Act model. Businesses will reap the benefits of a positive safety culture and maximised productivity in the workplace.

Various studies have shown that healthy employees increase organisational Return On Investment (ROI) and lead to a happier, more energised team. Working in a risk managed environment - for a company that is prepared to invest in its staff – is a powerful motivator for many people and as a result, fewer hours will be lost to absence or injury.
