IOSH Health and Safety Training

The IOSH Managing Safely course is for those that are in a position where they need to manage the safety of themselves and others. There is no need to have a health and safety background, but it would be advantageous if you did.

The course is structured to give you an understanding of why health and safety is important in the workplace. We will look in detail at three main reasons for having a good safety culture in the workplace:

  • Moral
  • Legal
  • Financial 

The course is structured so that we are not only talking about the devastating effects of personal injury but also the psychological effects it could have on a person who could have prevented the accident as well as the implication to the employer and how this could affect the other employees.

Throughout the course, we will discuss how to write a risk assessment and explain the importance of doing so. IOSH use what is known as a 5 grid system, and this will be taught during your training. It gives a comprehensive look into how to determine the likelihood, consequences and then work out the risk rating.

Altta Group takes a realistic approach to this, and we strongly encourage the class to be realistic also. Yes, we all know that you can have a serious injury or death due to a paper cut, but the reality is you will not. We aim to ensure that our candidates do not go to the extremes and make the workplace health and safety so restrictive that work can not be undertaken. 

There is a test at the end of the course and candidates will also need to carry out a risk assessment of work practice. They will have two weeks from the completion of the course to hand in their risk assessment for marking.

    • Unit 1: Introducing Managing Safely
    • Unit 2: Assessing risks

Why chose an IOSH training course:

  • IOSH Health and Safety courses are Internationally recognised
  • IOSH Health and Safety courses are recognised in most UK industries such as construction and logistics
  • IOSH Health and Safety courses are designed to help breed a positive health and safety culture within the workplace

  • IOSH Health and Safety is designed with interaction from all who attend not just death by PowerPoint

Why choose a classroom-based course and not an online course:

The temptation for a lot of people is to take an online training course as they feel that being able to learn at their own pace and time is a good way to learn.  This is ok if you can set the time to one side, however, after getting home from a long day at work, do you really want to sit down and start your IOSH Health and Safety training? Especially if you have a family to look after as well.

The other issue is the need for help. With a classroom-based course, you have an instructor on hand to help and guide you through your training.  An experienced instructor will be able to see why a candidate may be struggling and change the teaching methods to suit the needs of the candidate. Online training offers tutor support, but will the tutor really be on hand at 7,8,9 o’clock at night whilst you are studying?  In most cases, it will be email support which means you now have to piece an email together on a subject that you may not understand but you need to word it correctly to ensure you gain the correct information back.

The choice is always yours, but we would advise that you choose a classroom-based course with experienced instructors and not just experienced in classroom delivery but also in practical roles.  Our instructors at ALTTA have over 15 years of health and safety experience ranging from Transport, Warehousing, Construction, Mechanical, Hospitality amongst other industries.
