FAQs about IOSH Working Safely Course

IOSH Working Safely is one of the introductory health and safety training courses for workers at all levels in any industry. It is a perfect entry-level course for employees, as those who complete it will gain the required awareness of workplace health and safety, in line with UK legislation and best practice. The content is structured into four units: introducing working safely, defining hazards and risks, identifying common hazards, and improving safety performance.

This IOSH course is assessed in two parts. The first part is a multiple-choice examination, and the second is a hazard spotting exercise based on a workplace scenario. This hazard spotting exercise ensures that employees have grasped the hazard identification and reporting, enabling employees to contribute to a safe and healthy workplace. The intended behavioural outcome is that the employees become vested in health and safety through the training. This outcome can significantly contribute to creating a positive safety culture.

IOSH Working Safely involves 6 hours of learning which a trainer typically delivers in one full day in the classroom or online via Zoom, WebEx or Microsoft Teams. Alternatively, an interactive IOSH working safety eLearning course is available. Delegates can complete the online content in as little as four hours at a pace and at times that suit them and the employer. This approach can offer considerable benefits in the form of operational flexibility.
