The IOSH Working Safely® course trains employees how to contribute towards health and safety in the workplace and clearly explains their responsibilities. It also outlines what their employer should provide in the interests of health & safety.

Run as a one day course, our Working Safely® courses run frequently in many locations or we are happy to deliver in-house courses at preferential rates.

Course Content

The IOSH Working Safely® Course covers identifying hazards and evaluating risks in their workplace; the use of appropriate workplace precautions for specific risks or when to seek advice on workplace precautions; how to assist managers in preparing written risk assessments; the importance of following their organisation’s health and safety policy and co-operating and communicating on safety matters; how to carry out work activities without undue risk to themselves or others; and how to report relevant accidents and incidents and monitor their own activities and assist managers in active monitoring, whilst covering the principles, health and safety law.  It is based around four modules which cover:

          • Introducing Working Safely
          • Defining hazard & risks
          • Identifying common hazards
          • Improving safety performance

Other subjects bespoke to company requirements can also be covered. There are many interactive exercises to enhance the learning experience.

This course is designed to make employees, at all levels, aware of their responsibilities for safety toward themselves, colleagues and others affected by work activities. This internationally recognised training course is also ideal for companies that need to meet the ever-increasing demand for evidence of health and safety compliance. Companies have witnessed a marked improvement of their safety culture, productivity and the behaviour of their staff as a result of attending this course.

The IOSH Working Safely® electronic certificate is awarded to successful candidates who achieve the required standard in the short assessment paper consisting of 10 multi-choice questions and 3 x paper based hazard identification practical assessments.

This is a one day event running from 8.30 am to 5 pm. The IOSH Working Safely® certificate does not have an expiry date.

Typical fees for open courses are £180 plus VAT per person; however this can vary for in-house courses (dependant on location and numbers). The course fees are inclusive of the IOSH Working Safely® Workbook and certification charges.

We run open IOSH Working Safely® courses regularly in our training centre in Rainham Kent or we are happy to travel to your location if suitable facilities are available.

It pays to be selective when booking training courses because not all training providers are what they appear to be. When booking an IOSH Leading Safely Course you need to feel assured that your training provider is fully approved to provide that training and is not then going to sub-contract the work.  Lighthouse Safety Training are fully accredited by IOSH to provide the IOSH Working Safely® course and proof of that accreditation can be seen at our accreditation page.
