Why are IOSH Managing Safely courses important?

Health and safety legislation places an obligation on employers to ensure that employees receive adequate information, instruction, training, and supervision. The IOSH Managing Safely goes some way to ensure employers meet this requirement. In addition, those who undertake IOSH Managing Safely training should have an enhanced level of health and safety expertise. This outcome may enable them to offer support, guidance, and supervision to lesser trained or less experienced employees.

The IOSH Managing Safely course provides individuals with the tools to improve the safety culture in their organisations. The outcome of individuals applying these tools in the workplace can be tangible benefits such as increased productivity. This increase in productivity is likely due to less downtime associated with sickness and accidents. There can also be an enhanced internal and external reputation. Finally, employees can be happier, healthier, and safer, resulting in fewer accidents, incidences, and adverse events within the workplace.
