Overview

Managing safely won’t turn delegates into safety experts – but it will give them the knowledge and tools to tackle the health and safety issues they’re responsible for. Importantly, it brings home just why health and safety is such an essential part of their job. Memorable and thought-provoking facts, figures and case studies help drive the points home over the whole course. Each module is backed by crystal clear examples and recognisable scenarios, and summaries reinforce the key learning points. The course includes checklists and other materials for delegates to try out and then use when they get back to work. Learners’ understanding of health and safety basics is evaluated using multi-format questions and a risk assessment project.

Managing safely is for managers and supervisors in any sector, and any organisation. It’s designed to get managers up to speed on the practical actions they need to take to handle health and safety in their teams.

Modules and units

  • Introducing managing safely – The first module makes it clear that managers are accountable for their teams, and makes a persuasive case for managing safely.
  • Assessing risks – This module defines and demystifies ‘risk’ and ‘risk assessment’. Risk assessments and a simple scoring system are introduced, and delegates carry out a series of assessments.
  • Controlling risks – Here the session tackles cutting risks down, concentrating on the best techniques to control key risks, and how to choose the right method.
  • Understanding your responsibilities – This module looks at the demands of the law and how the legal system works, and introduces a health and safety management system.
  • Identifying hazards – All the main issues any operation has to deal with are covered in this module – entrances and exits, work traffic, fire, chemicals, electricity, physical and verbal abuse, bullying, stress, noise, housekeeping and the working environment, slips, trips and falls, working at height, computers and manual handling.
  • Investigating accidents and incidents – The session starts with why accidents should be investigated, and goes on to cover why things go wrong, and how to carry out an investigation when they do.
  • Measuring performance – This module explains how checking performance can help to improve health and safety.
  • Protecting our environment – A short but effective introduction to waste and pollution leads into a look at how  organisations and individual managers can get involved in cutting down environmental impacts.
