IOSH Managing Safely Course in Construction
The IOSH accredited course has been designed to provide delegates with a sound overview and understanding of the typical health and safety issues to be considered and managed within the construction industry and those sectors associated with it. The course covers the standard IOSH ‘Managing Safely’ domain material but also industry specific theory and practice, which is delivered within an engaging environment using relevant scenarios for anyone working within construction. The tutors are competent and time served in both health and safety and the industry itself, so all scenarios and examples discussed will be relevant in-line with current best practice. In addition, the tutors are interactive and engaging by nature: both of which are essential to the success and added value of any training course!
The course is designed to be run in either a modular format (i.e. 4 x 1 or 2 x 2 days) or in 4 days in succession and the content can be tailored to suit the requirements of specific organisations, their procedures and their typical working environments.
