Who should go on Managing Safely Course?
Managing Safely is for managers and supervisors in any sector, and any organisation. It is designed to equip managers and supervisors on the practical actions they need to take to handle health and safety in their teams.
Introducing Managing Safely
Some managers may see health and safety as an add-on to their role – even an intrusion. The first module makes it clear that managers are accountable for their teams.
This module defines and demystifies ‘risk’ and ‘risk assessment’. Risk assessments and a simple scoring system are introduced, and delegates carry out a series of assessments.
This session tackles risks reduction by concentrating on the best techniques to control key risks, and how to choose the right method.
Understanding your Responsibilities
This module looks at the demands of the law and how the legal system works, and introduces a health and safety management system.
All the main issues any operation has to deal with are covered in this module – entrances and exits, works traffic, fire, chemicals, electricity, physical and verbal abuse, bullying, stress, noise, housekeeping and the working environment, slips, trips and falls.
Investigating Accidents and Incidents
The session starts with why accidents should be investigated, it covers why things go wrong and how to carry out an investigation when they do.
This module explains how checking performance can help to improve health and safety. Delegates learn how to develop basic performance indicators, and get to grips with auditing and proactive and reactive measuring.
Protecting Our Environment
A short but effective introduction to waste and pollution leads into how organisations and individual managers can get involved in cutting down environmental impacts.
