IOSH Managing Safely in Aviation - A New Course from Astutis
Astutis have developed a new IOSH accredited course - IOSH Managing Safely in Aviation.
The course aims to provide the aviation industry with a blanket standard for managers, which ensures they are up to speed with the latest needs and developments. The ultimate aim of the course is to reduce the number of injuries suffered by airports' operational staff.
Steve Terry, Managing Director of Astutis, said:
“Managers and supervisors need to understand and accept their responsibilities with regard to the health and safety of their staff and contractors. The importance of good, robust health and safety management cannot be understated given the variety of risks present in the industry. Hopefully, this course will go some way to help bosses understand this."
Managing Safely in Aviation covers topics such as ramp safety, aircraft turnaround and airside safety management.Interactive games and video footage help the delegates learn how a 'common sense' approach to health and safety management can help airport work activities run smoothly.
Astutis worked closely with IOSH's Aviation and Aerospace Group, as well as aviation safety specialists and other industry bodies, when developing the course.
This is the first accredited course for managers within the aviation industry and as such Astutis hope it will raise awareness, reduce ’unnecessary’ accidents and generally raise health and safety standards, making them consistent across the board.
