January 2019

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.

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 for Managers

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.

IOSH Managing Safely Refresher is an opportunity for everyone who has completed the full course to update their skills and learn any new legislation and best practice.

IOSH Sector-specific Management Training

IOSH offers a suite of training based on Managing Safely aimed exclusively at those working in the Aviation or Construction sectors. These sector specific courses use the principles of Managing Safely but have tailored content covering hazards, guidance, typical scenarios relevant to the aviation or construction sector. For example, staff completing IOSH Managing Safely in Aviation will have an excellent understanding of airside and landside health and safety management issues in this highly regulated sector and the requirements of the CAP642 and UK HSE legislation.

IOSH for Directors

Directors and Senior Managers of companies are at high risk if health and safety failings occur within their workplace, with hefty fines and even prison sentences possible for breaches of legislation. Directors who strategically integrate health and safety as part of their management systems will see the value in the overall business performance.

IOSH Safety for Executives and Directors is designed for those in strategic positions at the helm of a company. The course ensures that they are fully aware of the latest developments in health and safety legislation and know how to apply safer working practices throughout their business.

The IOSH Brand in Safety

IOSH is an internationally recognised brand in safety and organisations that rely on IOSH training can demonstrate it as their commitment to maintaining good health and safety standards. This in turn helps to improve the company reputation among their stakeholders with a more engaged workforce and greater productivity.

Flexible IOSH Training

Most IOSH courses have the flexibility of being taken and assessed online and this makes them highly accessible to everybody wherever they are located. If employees are working in different locations or work patterns, cannot be released from their job to attend a class-based course, online learning is a convenient solution. Whatever drives the need to take an IOSH course online, they are designed to be fully inclusive.
