This course is approved by the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH) and is intended for executive managers and directors in small to medium sized enterprises who wish to raise their awareness of health and safety legislation. The course also covers documentation and procedures required, with particular relevance to existing company health and safety policies and health and safety procedures.

Key topics of this IOSH training course include:

  • The Legal Framework

  • The Causes of Accidents
  • Requirements and Potential Penalties
  • Financial Implications


  • Who should attend?

    Directors, executive & senior managers; the course is valid across all industry sectors but is focused on small to medium sized enterprises. For larger organisations the IOSH Safety for Senior Executives course would be more appropriate.

The course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.
