IOSH Working Safely

The IOSH Working Safely training course is suitable for anyone, at any level, in any sector, needing a grounding in Health & Safety. Everyone at work should have an understanding of why they must 'work safely' - and this course offers exactly that. Through completing the course delegates can ensure that their understanding of Health and Safety in the workplace is at a good standard.

The IOSH Working Safely Course covers the following areas;

  • Introducing working safely
  • Defining hazard and risk
  • How does human failure contribute to the cause of accidents?
  • Identifying common hazards
  • Improving safety performance
  • Protecting our environment

What will the delegates get out of it?

What they need to know - and are perhaps reluctant to learn about - in a refreshingly informal way. Working safely isn't supposed to turn delegates into safety experts. It focuses on why health and safety is important, and how individuals can make a real difference to the wellbeing of themselves and others through changing their behaviour.

What will their employer get out of it?

  • nationally recognised and respected certificated training for their teams
  • peace of mind offered by training that's designed and quality-controlled by the Chartered body for health and safety
  • minimum disruption to working days and shifts - the one-day programme includes the assessment, so there's no need to free up further time for a test after the course
  • Working safely meets the government's guidelines for introductory health and safety training and is a 100 per cent match to the Health and Safety Executive's 'passport' syllabus
  • two key areas - health and safety and environmental basics - are covered in a single self-contained session

I don't have Microsoft Office or Microsoft Word, what should I do?

If you don't have Microsoft Office, or Microsoft Word installed on your PC or Mac, don't worry - you can still use our products. You can get a free alternative from Open Office.

Open Office Org is open-source developed alternative to Microsoft Office, developed by a large software company called Oracle. Open Source means the company who build the software, allow 100% use of it, 100% free.

Since Open Office is specifically developed to be exactly the same as Microsoft Office, with all the same programs in the suite (Eg: Word, Excel, Access and Power Point) - it will freely open any Microsoft Office file-format. Meaning, just because a document was written in Microsoft Word, doesn't mean it can't be opened in another program. Open Office will do that, and vise versa.

To download and install Open Office;

  1. Go to www.openoffice.org.
  2. On the left hand side, click 'I want to download Open Office'. In the green box, click the main link which starts with 'Start downloading OpenOffice.org...'
    • Windows Only:When the program has downloaded, click Install and wait for the program to install.
    • MAC OSX Only:When the program has downloaded, a notification box will pop up with an arrow from the Open Office Icon to the Applications Folder in Finder, drag the icon to the Applications folder to install the program.
  3. You are now ready to use Open Office, and the documents you have purchased from us.
