IOSH Working Safely
The IOSH Working Safely Course provides a basic introduction to safe working practices for non-health and safety specialists. The training will give employees at all levels the information they need to keep themselves and others safe at work.
Forget ‘chalk and talk’. It’s time to turn traditional training on its head. We need to inspire delegates, to get them engaged with health and safety. If learning is enjoyable and stimulating we stand a better chance of getting vital health and safety messages across.
Easier said than done? Not if we work in partnership. We provide the tools, and our accredited trainers provide the training expertise. Working Safely: introducing a completely new approach to health and safety training. Marking success in Working safely, delegates who successfully complete the written and practical assessments can choose between IOSH’s Working safely certificate or a credit card-sized ‘passport’ card.

Who should go on Working safely?
IOSH Working safely is for people at any level, in any sector, needing a grounding in the essentials of health and safety. Everyone at work should have an understanding of why they must ‘work safely’ – and this course offers exactly that.
What will they get out of it?
What they need to know – and are perhaps reluctant to learn about – in a refreshingly informal way. Working safely isn’t supposed to turn delegates into safety experts. It focuses on why health and safety is important, and how individuals can make a real difference to the wellbeing of themselves and others through changing their behaviour.
What will their employer get out of it?
Nationally recognised and respected certificated training for their teams
peace of mind offered by training that’s designed and quality-controlled by the Chartered body for health and safety
minimum disruption to working days and shifts – the one-day programme includes the assessment, so there’s no need to free up further time for a test after the course
Working safely meets the government’s guidelines for introductory health and safety training and is a 100 per cent match to the Health and Safety Executive’s ‘passport’ syllabus
two key areas – health and safety and environmental basics – are covered in a single self-contained session.
Working safely delivers… Since Working safely was first launched in 1993, over 200,000 people from a huge range of sectors have successfully completed the course and learned how to ‘work safely’
