As a new manager, one of your new responsibilities is likely to be the management of health and safety. It is up to managers to ensure that all reasonable precautions have been taken and control measures put in place in order to reduce as far as possible the chances of a worker becoming ill or injured as a result of doing their job.

One of the most popular health and safety training courses for managers is the IOSH Managing Safely certificate. Typically run over four days, this qualification provides managers with a comprehensive overview of the main health and safety issues that will apply to a workplace in virtually any industry. These include risk assessments and hazard identification, accident prevention, environmental considerations, legal responsibilities and much more.

So if you are a new manager and are taking your first steps into the management of health and safety in the workplace, this course will be ideal, particularly if you have had little or no formal health and safety training in the past. See the IOSH Managing Safely course at our sister company ATC Risk Management to find out more about it along with scheduled dates and prices.
