Next month Stuart will be attending an IOSH course; IOSH stands for the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health. It is a three-day course that will cover working safely and managing safely. Working safely is aimed at all employees; this will cover the essentials of health and safety in the workplace. Managing safely, which is aimed at managers, supervisors and team leaders, will give them the skills and knowledge to manage health and safety within teams.
The training usually includes activities such as identifying hazards, then writing up and assessing potential risks and improving health and safety performance in general.
