Who are IOSH Courses Designed For? Making the Most Out of Your IOSH Training.

January 2024

IOSH, the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) is the world's leading professional body for people responsible for safety and health in the workplace. They offer courses for everyone with any level of responsibility in all companies. Popular IOSH courses are for employees who need an awareness of their safety responsibilities, Managers who must develop the skills to manage their teams effectively and Directors who recognise the need to integrate health and safety into their company strategy.

IOSH courses are for all employees who encounter varying levels of risk in their day-to-day working life dependent on their role and responsibilities. They are designed to provide relevant, practical safety training for the workforce so companies can embed a safety conscious culture, which will trigger business benefits.

IOSH Working Safely: A Benefit for all Employees

Businesses can benefit significantly in all areas by having a workforce that has been trained on health and safety issues. As a result of taking an IOSH course, employees can ensure their own working practices are safe, resulting in an overall safer working environment. Companies have a legal, financial and moral duty to raise awareness across the workforce of their responsibility in good health and safety practice by training employees in a suitable course.

IOSH Working Safely is designed to be taken by employees working in all sectors, in companies of any size . It aims to enhance health, safety and well-being by improving employee behaviour. Companies will naturally see a positive health & safety culture develop, directly improving the overall operating performance with a safety aware workforce.

IOSH Managing Safely: Upskill Your Management Team

IOSH Managing Safely, as a risk -based course has been designed to upskill managers and supervisors so they know how to practically manage risk, investigate accidents, measure performance and effectively deal with basic health and safety issues within their teams.

Training managers will become advocates of good safety practice and help actively engage the workforce to play their part improving the safety culture. This in turn results in a more productive workforce and less time being lost due to sickness or injury.
