Course Overview...


Module 1: Introducing Managing Safely

In this module we explore the issues and concepts that drive an organisation to manage health and safety. We also talk about some of the responsibilities of managers and how they differ from the concept of accountability.

Module 2: Assessing Risks

Risk assessments are a cornerstone of effective management of health and safety and in this module we get down to the nitty-gritty of exactly how to go about identifying hazards properly and then carefully evaluating the level of risk presented by each hazard to that key decisions can be made about whether the level of risk is tolerable or whether things need to be done to bring the level of risk down.

Module 3: Controlling Risks

Building on the work done in the risk assessment, this insightful module delves into how best to reduce and control risks. We answer questions like "how low does the level of risk need to be to achieve legal compliance?" and "what's the most effective and economical way of dealing with health and safety risks?"

Module 4: Understanding Responsibilities

Here's where we take a look at the often-misunderstood area of health and safety legislation. Don't worry, we make this topic interesting and easy-to-understand. Learners on our courses often mention how informative they find this area of the course. We also look at health and safety management systems that provide the infrastructure that managers will be working with.

Module 5: Understanding Hazards

What can cause harm in the workplace? How does the harm occur? What are the effects, both mental and physical, short term and long term? These are just a few of the issues that you'll be able to confidently manage after completing this module. We cover a wide range of the most common workplace hazards.

Module 6: Investigating Incidents

This enlightening module covers the essential skill of how to properly conduct an incident investigation and reveals the reasons why you could be setting the organisation up for future failures by only looking at the obvious and superficial. We teach you how to scratch away and the surface and take a deep dive to uncover the true causes of most incidents so you can stop prevent them from ever happening.

Module 7: Measuring Performance

The saying goes..."you cannot manage what you do not measure", and how very true it is. But a busy manager simply hasn't got the time to measure everything, so needs to use skill and insight in order to carefully select the right things to measure and which things they can safely disregard as unnecessary box-ticking.
