IOSH Course and Good Working Knowledge of English
In reality, the only basic requirement for taking an IOSH Health and Safety Course is a good working level of English. You are not expected to be a proficient writer or a grammar whiz but you need to be confident to understand and write English. It is important that you or staff members are able to fully use the course materials and apply your new knowledge to your workplace.
The IOSH courses are taken by people based all over the world. The IOSH Course material is designed to offer the practical information and tools for people to develop a positive safety culture in plain English.
Best IOSH Health and Safety Course For You or Your Team
It's true that IOSH Health and Safety Courses don’t have entry requirements but some courses are aimed specifically at certain professional levels of seniority. An example is the IOSH Safety for Executives and Directors, specifically designed for CEOs and Directors and the benefits of proactively managing health and safety in the workplace.
Some IOSH courses target sectors for example IOSH Managing Safely in Aviation or Construction. Therefore, if you or your staff do not fall into these levels or sectors those courses will not be suitable as they will be covering material that is irrelevant to specific job roles. Therefore, it is important to find the right IOSH course to fit the role.
There are IOSH courses designed for workers at every level, whether you don't have any specific health and safety responsibility, or manage a team or you are head of Health and Safety within a company. This means that careful selection of your course is necessary to be sure, that it is going to be the most suitable course for you.
Right Price for the IOSH Course
The price of the IOSH course is probably one of the key factors during the decision making process. Whether it is self-funded or the company is paying for your IOSH training, before embarking on your course you will need to decide on the best solution to meet your budget. If you are hoping to be corporately funded then you will need to approach your manager with the benefits of taking the IOSH course for the company.
