I felt the IOSH Managing Safely Training course at IPS was thorough and engaging. Peter, the Trainer, was excellent at delivering the material and very helpful.

Did you know even office based environments that are sometimes considered low-risk job roles, also need to have risk assessments to keep employees safe? Do you have the sufficient knowledge to conduct them?

The Managing Safely (IOSH) training course is designed to get people up to speed on the practical actions they need to take to handle health and safety in their teams. If you are serious about becoming a valuable member of your team, then boost your career by updating your knowledge in health and safety management.

Health and Safety is a big topic, one day of training is not enough but four days gives sufficient knowledge so that delegates can apply lessons learned in the workplace and if needed, go on to further higher level training.

The IOSH Managing Safely Course delivers health and safety training that really works for managers, team leaders, supervisors and staff in any sector who have an interest in health and safety.
