IOSH Managing Safely – HS05
Our IOSH managing safely course is aimed at managers and supervisors in any sector or organisation. It is designed to get managers up to speed on the practical actions they need to take to handle health and safety within their teams.
“The delivery of the course was perfectly blended between reading and discussion / participation”
Why do our customers choose us?
IOSH courses are fun, interesting and thought provoking, even more so when delivered by our trainers, members of IOSH who’ve been providing these courses to varied audience for many years.
Our courses are delivered by knowledgeable and enthusiastic consultants and trainers all of whom hold adult teaching qualifications supported by a professional qualification and considerable, hands on practical experience which is reflected in our grounded, pragmatic approach.
Teaching 18,000 delegates a year Acorn Health & Safety offer training to individuals, groups and entire staff teams we are committed to providing excellent training delivered in a relaxed, yet informative style.
How do we approach IOSH managing safely training?
Our course programme employs a variety of teaching techniques to meet the needs of individual delegates. This course programme, approved by the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) follows a set syllabus and contains the most up to date information available including:
- Introducing managing safely
- Assessing risks
- Controlling risks
- Understanding your responsibilities
- Identifying hazards
- Investigating accidents and incidents
- Measuring performance
- Protecting our environment
The managing safely course won’t turn you into a safety expert – but will provide the knowledge and tools to tackle the health and safety issues you are responsible for.
The course is recommended for anyone in a management or supervisory role.. It is designed for managers and supervisors in any sector and in any country and provides the knowledge and tools required to manage safely.
Our industry experienced trainers pride themselves in their ability to fully include delegates from all business sectors attending the course, and actively seek to promote discussion, participation and sharing of real life experiences to enhance the course content and overall training room experience for course delegates. We regularly receive commendations for our course delivery, and achieve an enviably high pass rate in the end of course assessment which leads to an internationally recognised certificate for successful delegates.
Split into seven easily absorbed modules which are based on clear recognisable real life examples, the course allows for plenty of interaction through quizzes, games and discussion, with a flexibility of delivery to suit any business requirements.
Businesses benefit from enhanced hazard identification and risk assessment ability, increased employee involvement to improve workplace safety, enhanced reputation within the supply chain, and should an accident happen, a clear structured approach ensures a thorough unbiased investigation can be undertaken resulting in corrective and preventative actions.
Delegates attending this course can expect:
- Memorable and thought-provoking facts and case studies
- Modules backed by clear examples and recognisable scenarios
- Summaries to reinforce key points
- Checklists and materials supplied for subsequent use in the workplace
- Interactive quiz and discussions
- Practical exercise based on the operations of a real business
- Successful delegates awarded a Managing Safely certificate
Every delegate who has attended all 7 modules, then takes the end-of-course assessments which consist of a multi-format question paper on the last day of the course and they must complete a risk assessment project. This is usually completed in the workplace and returned to us within 2 weeks of the last day of the course. The project can be completed using either the IOSH project template or a copy of a blank company risk assessment form from the delegate's own organisation (providing it meets the criteria). There are also 2 mock assessments, each with 5 questions.
The course duration is 4 days.

Post course our team of consultants and trainers are available to answer any questions you might have. You’ll also receive an automatic reminder prior to course expiry.
