Overview

Working safely isn’t supposed to turn learners into safety experts. It focuses on why health and safety is important, and how individuals can make a real difference to the wellbeing of themselves and others through changing their behaviour. First class, jargon-free technical content based on what people need to know in practice, not off-putting legal language
Assessment is built into the day’s training – no need for follow-on tests on separate days, taking up valuable work time.

Marking success in Working Safely
Delegates who successfully complete the written and practical assessments can choose between IOSH’s Working Safely certificate or a credit card-sized ‘passport’ card.
