An important note for this IOSH Refresher course is that it is only for people who have already completed and passed the full 3 day IOSH Managing Safely course online or class-based.

This IOSH Refresher course offers managers an essential opportunity to refresh their knowledge based on the plan-do-check-act model; it will also give them the confidence to use it day-to-day. An IOSH certified management team, confident in their refreshed knowledge can develop a safety aware culture across the organisation. If you want to know a little more about this Refresher course, read on.

What does IOSH Managing Safely Refresher cover?

It covers six areas reflecting back on what was learnt in the full IOSH Managing Safely course. It uses the management model plan-do-check-act and also covers the importance of the role leadership plays. There are six modules:

  1. Thinking back - on the reasons for managing safely and the key terms
  2. Leadership - its importance and how to create a health and safety culture
  3. Plan  - what's included in a health & safety policy
  4. Do - carry out a risk assessment, communicate its findings and the health & safety plan
  5. Check - how to measure if the plan is implemented and working
  6. Act - the importance of reviewing performance, health & safety audits and continual improvement

Throughout the course you will be relating what you have learnt to your own workplace with practical case studies.

How long does it take to complete?

As you have already completed the full 3-day IOSH Managing Safely certificate, the Refresher is only a short course. It lasts around 6 hours for online but this will vary on your level of knowledge and pace of learning. If you take it as a classroom course, it is 1 day of training.
