June 2019

Maybe you have heard people talking about a refresher of IOSH Managing Safely but you would like some more clarification from this blog. IOSH Managing Safely Refresher is for managers and supervisors who need to keep up-to-date on their safety responsibilities. 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. The IOSH Managing Safely Refresher can also be taken online.

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. 

Is there a test for IOSH Managing Safely Refresher?

Don't panic! There is a only a short answer/ multiple choice test taken at the end of the course. You must get at least 20 marks out of a potential of 32 to pass and receive your IOSH Managing Safely Refresher certificate. You will have 30 minutes to answer  the 21 questions in a variety of formats, including multiple choice, true/false, open questions and short answers. Each question is worth anything from 1 to 5 marks.

If you complete the course via e-learning, the test will be taken online at the end of the six modules. You will get your result instantly once you have completed all 21 questions. However the score will need to be checked by IOSH within 6 weeks. If you take a classroom course of IOSH Managing Safely Refresher, you will complete the test in hard copy and you will get the results from IOSH within 8 to 10 weeks.
