IOSH Working Safely


Everyone at work should have an understanding of why they must work safely.

Course Overview

Working Safely is a completely different approach to safety and health training. It’s a high-impact programme designed to be fun and get people fully involved. The first-class, jargon-free content is based on what people need to know in practice, and not off-putting legal language.

Working safely is a one-day course for people at any level, in any sector, that need a grounding in health and safety. It is ideal for introducing staff to why health and safety is important, Working safely shows how everyone can make a difference to their own wellbeing and that of others through everyday behaviours.

Fun and interactive, the course focuses on best practice rather than legislation.
