These highly trained and experienced individuals represent our organisation day in day out and deliver such high standards both in terms of quality and health and safety. Therefore what a perfect way to start!
For a few of the delegates it took a bit of adjustment to the theory and practical based subjects as many of them haven’t been back to school for a while, but after a little help and guidance they knew what it was all about and were cracking on and interacting nicely as a group.
One of the great things about the OH&S (Occupational Health and Safety) course is its simplicity and it does this very effectively by including quite a lot of interactive materials from beginning to end. This ranges from simple quizzes to guess health and safety statistics to fun board games identifying hazards within various workplace scenarios. This allowed for a more relaxed atmosphere right from the start and also the opportunity for some of the quieter member of staff to get really involved.
Craig Deamer of JV Price who carried out the training explained “it does what it says on the tin! great introductory course which can be taught at any level and to any work force, only a basic level of understanding required, therefore I would say this course is ideally suited to the general workforce”
“Anyone Managing or Supervising Health and Safety and where part of their roles and responsibilities might be to carry out risk assessments would be better suited to the IOSH Managing Safely Course which is a fairly intense 4 day course as oppose to the 1 day Working Safely Course”
The aim of the IOSH Working Safely Course is to provide delegates with a basis understanding of health and safety and which meets government guidelines for introductory health and safety training.
By the end of the course the delegates should be able to:
- Explain the consequences of both the individual and their organisation if they fail to work safely
- Define the term ‘hazard, ‘risk’ and ‘risk controls’
- Explain the importance of risk assessment
- Appreciate the role of workplace precautions
- Describe the role of a health and safety management system
- Appreciate the importance of:
- Emergency plans and procedures
- Safe systems of work
- Accident reporting
- Inspection and monitoring
- Personal protective equipment
- Safety signs
- First aid
This has been a great start for our IOSH training centre and we all look forward to its continued growth and development throughout 2014 and onwards.
