Managing safely

Don’t just train... inspire!

It’s not about teaching, it’s about learning
No more ‘death by PowerPoint’. We know that getting people fully involved, having fun, and learning by doing, is the way to achieve health and safety training success. We want to get delegates really thinking about what they’re learning – and having the confidence and enthusiasm to put it into practice when they’re back at work. This course is unlike any other. You’ll find a practical programme, full of step-by-step guidance, and with a sharp business focus. But you’ll also find that the highly innovative format and content engages and inspires delegates – critical to getting essential health and safety messages across. Managing safely: introducing a completely new approach to health and safety training • a four/five-day course covering the health and safety management basics in a high impact interactive package • superb quality animated graphics created exclusively for the course • a sophisticated but fun presentation • first class technical content, based on what delegates need to know in practice • no jargon or off-putting legal language • clear scenarios that managers can relate to • a range of ready-to-use training tools, including a board game, DVDs and quizzes

“A dynamic education package ... brings health and safety to life” Matt Terry, Bovis Lend Lease “Informative and thought-provoking. Excellent course materials” Ken Stewart, Young Enterprise East Midlands

Managing safely delivers...
Who should go on Managing safely? Managing safely is for managers and supervisors in any sector, and any organisation. It’s designed to get managers up to speed on the practical actions they need to take to handle health and safety in their teams. What will they get out of it? What they need to know – and are perhaps reluctant to learn about – in a refreshingly informal way. Managing safely won’t turn delegates into safety experts – but it will give them the knowledge and tools to tackle the health and safety issues they’re responsible for. Importantly, it brings home just why health and safety is such an essential part of their job. Successful delegates are awarded an IOSH Managing safely certificate. What will their employer get out of it? • nationally recognised and respected certificated training for their managers and supervisors • peace of mind offered by training that’s designed and qualitycontrolled by the Chartered body for health and safety professionals • flexibility – the four/five day programme can be delivered in slots that suit the business • two key areas – health and safety and environmental basics – are covered in a single programme What will trainers get out of it? • straightforward, high quality training designed by a team of specialists • a ready-to-go programme pack – we’ve done the hard work, saving trainers the headache and the hassle • full back-up from our support team on every aspect of training, from advice on the training environment to guidance on marking assessments • free technical updates

“The level is just right for managers” Tony Cheesman, West Anglia Training Association
