Managing Safely Made Easier

Managing safely can seem like a hard thing to do. After all you have a company to run and projects to get done. You wish nobody would get hurt and everything would be just fine. But then there is the workplace safety thing. There are workplace safety experts and workplace safety officers who tell you all the legal mambo jumbo and sometimes people start looking at safety professionals as the Evil Force, the Dark Side (when they are not). But theres too much information and legal jargon. Managing Safely and managing safety should not have to be confusing or hard. We will do our best to give you simple information here to help you out.

First- Where did this term or course come from – Managing Safely (other than being just common sense). It came from IOSH. Whats IOSH?

What is IOSH?

IOSH stands for the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health and it is the chartered body for health and safety professionals around the globe. In fact IOSH is one of the largest member organisations in the world. The IOSH Managing Safely course, is widely accepted as a good place to start in health and safety courses at managerial level.

First some clarity- IOSH is NOT NEBOSH. NEBOSH is NOT IOSH. They are 2 different organisations. Yes both come from UK. NEBOSH is the National Examination Board Occupational Safety Health. NEBOSH sets standards and in very simple terms creates the exam materials and standards for the NEBOSH exams (there are many NEBOSH courses/exams from NEBOSH Health at Safety at Work to NEBOSH International General Certificate to NEBOSH Diploma).

IOSH is a membership body but has some courses that benefit the industry like the IOSH Working Safely and IOSH Managing Safely.


So what is IOSH Managing Safely?

Many people in UK have gone through the IOSH Working Safely and Managing Safely in their pursuit to become qualified safety professionals but these courses are not just limited to those wanting a safety career. There are many managers and supervisors that need to understand the technical jargon and safety requirements but do not wish to take up technical courses.

The IOSH Managing Safely is a three-day course that gives candidates a solid foundation in the principles of health and safety management and seeks to instil in managers, the confidence needed to manage their work and their workforce safely and efficiently.
