IOSH Directing Safely

PLEASE NOTE: As of August 2016, this course has been superseded by the IOSH Safety for Executives and Directors course.


Aims and Objectives

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
  • Risk Assessment
  • Health and Safety Management
  • The Causes of Accidents
  • Requirements and Potential Penalties
  • Financial Implications


  • Who should attend?

    Directors, executives & 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.


    Course Material

    Each delegate will be issued with a workbook to assist them both during and after the course, which will contain information, guidance and forms to assist directors. The course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.

    Duration

    The course will be delivered over one day.
