Leading Safely is aimed at people with leadership responsibilities, such as senior managers, directors, heads of departments, board members, business owners and chief executives – wherever they are in the world. It will convince leaders that effective safety and health management will create real and lasting business benefits
The IOSH Leading Safely Course trains top level decision makers to develop an appreciation of the moral, financial and legal issues relating to workplace health and safety throughout the management process.
The course covers:
– safety and health and what it means for different leadership roles
– the responsibilities and behaviours of a leader
– what effective safety and health leadership looks like
– how to get things right
– how leaders can make improvements
– the benefits of effective safety and health leadership.
Learners use the diagnostic tool, accessed via a mobile app, to identify their current safety and health position against a set of critical questions. The tool recommends the actions they should take. At the end of the course they make a commitment to a personal action plan to improve their own and their organisations’ safety and health management.
The IOSH Leading Safely Certificate is awarded to successful candidates who achieve the required standard in the short assessment paper at the end of the course.
Candidates are not required to bring any equipment with them on this course.
No previous experience is required.
