Who is Managing Safely for?

Managing safely is for managers and supervisors in any sector, and any organization. It’s designed to get managers up to speed on the practical actions they need to take to handle safety and health in their teams.

Upon successful completion of the course and assessment, students are awarded a Managing Safely certificate from the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) (UK) – the world’s largest health and safety membership organization. 

The training will be delivered in English but with Arabic and Kurdish support. MSELECT and trainer are IOSH certified members.

What's In It for Me?

IOSH Managing Safely will give you the knowledge, skills, and confidence to manage health and safety within your team. Upon successful completion of the course and assessment, you will be awarded a Managing Safely certificate from the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), the world’s largest health and safety membership organization. This certificate offers a distinct advantage to anyone holding or seeking a managerial or supervisory position.

What Will They Get Out Of It?

Delegates will teach what they need to know – and are perhaps reluctant to learn about – in a refreshingly informal way. Managing safely won’t turn delegates into safety experts – but it will give them the knowledge and tools to tackle the safety and health issues they’re responsible for. Importantly, it brings home just why safety and health is such an essential part of their job. Successful delegates are awarded an IOSH Managing Safely certificate.

What Will Employers Get Out Of It?
  • Globally-recognized and respected certificated training for their managers and supervisors

  • Peace of mind offered by training that’s designed and quality-assured by the Chartered body for safety and health professionals

  • Flexibility – the program can be delivered in time-slots that suit the business

  • Two key areas – safety and health– are covered in a single program 

   And The End Results Are…
  • Fewer hours lost due to sickness and accidents, resulting in greater productivity

  • Improved, company-wide safety awareness culture and appreciation for safety measures

  • Proactive staff involvement to improve the workplace

  • Enhanced reputation within the supply chain.

Course Content

1 Introducing Managing Safely

Some managers may see safety and health as an add-on to their role – even an intrusion. The first module makes it clear that managers are accountable for their teams, and makes a persuasive case for managing safely.

2 Assessing risks

This module defines and demystifies ‘risk’ and ‘risk assessment’. Risk assessments and a simple scoring system are introduced, and delegates carry out a series of assessments.

3 Controlling risks

Here the session tackles cutting down risks, concentrating on the best techniques to control key risks, and how to choose the right method.

4 Understanding responsibilities

This module looks at the demands of the law and how the legal system works, and for those who do not have strict guidelines or laws, there is guidance and placeholders to fill with relevant information and introduces a safety and health management system.

5 Understanding the hazards

All the main issues any operation has to deal with are covered in this module – aggression and violence, asbestos, bullying, chemicals, computer workstations, confined spaces, drugs and alcohol, electricity, fire,

getting in and out, heights, housekeeping, lighting, manual handling, noise, plant and machinery, radiation, slips and trips, stress, temperature, vehicles and transport, and vibration.

6 Investigating incidents

The session starts with why incidents should be investigated and goes on to cover why things go wrong, and how to carry out an investigation when they do.

This module explains how checking performance can help to improve safety and health. Delegates learn how to develop basic performance indicators, and get to grips with auditing and proactive and reactive measuring.
