In December, we delivered an open IOSH Managing Safety Training Course to some of our members including FareShare, Holdsworth Foods and Fullers foods. Simon Brentnall, said; “We have received some great feedback. The course is the market-leading health and safety course for line managers as it makes them aware of their responsibilities and accountabilities in the Health & Safety field while helping to improve the safety culture in your organisation”.
The course is designed for managers and anyone giving work instructions to others. The syllabus includes:
- Assessing risks
- Controlling risks
- Understanding responsibilities
- Understanding hazards
- Investigating incidents
- Measuring performance
It takes around 22 hours to complete the course and we deliver this over 3 consecutive days. The course can be carried out in either face-to-face or virtually on Zoom. Following the training, the delegates take a written assessment and take away a risk assessment project which is returned within a month. Successful delegates then receive a certificate and we currently have a 100% pass rate.
We hope to run another session in April 2023 for the federation which will be advertised on our website.
