IOSH Managing Safely

Managing Safely is a four day course aimed at park managers and supervisors. It is designed to get them up to speed on the practical actions and applications they need to take to handle health and safety within their teams.

They will be given the information they need to know – and are perhaps reluctant to learn about – in a refreshingly informal way.  They will learn about practical solutions to the common health and safety issues that occur in a park environment.

Managing Safely will not turn delegates into safety experts – but it will give them the knowledge and tools they require to tackle the health and safety issues they are responsible for. More importantly, it brings home just why health and safety is such an essential and integral part of their job.

The course is made up of eight modules:

  • Introducing managing safely – Why managers are accountable for their teams
  • Assessing risks – Demystifying ‘risk’ and ‘risk assessment’
  • Controlling risks – Cutting risks down, the best techniques to control key risks and how to choose the right method.
  • Understanding your responsibilities –  the demands of the law and how the legal system works
  • Identifying hazards – Looking at the main issues a park business has to deal with
  • Investigating accidents and incidents – Why accidents should be investigated, why things go wrong, and how to carry out an investigation when they do
  • Measuring performance – How to develop basic performance indicators, and get to grips with auditing and proactive and reactive measuring.
  •  Protecting our environment –  An effective introduction to waste and pollution
