IOSH Managing Safely

Overview:

Introduction:

Safety is not the prerogative of the safety specialist but also one of the parts in every management discipline. An office manager is no less responsible for the safety of his team than the construction manager. The law and company policy apply equally to both. The course will not turn delegates into safety experts but it will give them the appreciation of what safety issues are about and the methods available to them to ensure that safety is implemented in their workplaces. It is, after all, a manager’s responsibility to have a workplace free of danger and a workforce free of ill health and accidents. Managers will be able to review their departmental systems for safety, introducing new controls or implementing changes as appropriate to ensure safety in the workplace
