The refresher course covers and recaps lessons from the Managing Safely course, in addition to building upon these lessons with updated information. The final focus for this refresher course is the health and safety management system: plan, do, check and act.
You will reflect on the lessons you took away from your full IOSH Managing Safely course, and revisit key reasons for managing and supervising safely. Refresh your knowledge on some key terms using engaging and inclusive teaching methods.
Revisit why leadership and management is important, how that can impact the health and safety culture and attitudes throughout your organisation.
Refresh your knowledge on the 4 C’s, the essentials to good practise.
Take a look at health and safety policy and what it includes, how should you deliver this within your organisation, and how to use an effective management system to control risk, react to change, respond to emergencies and meet legal requirements.
Undertake the risk assessment exercise, think about and discuss the best ways to communicate your findings from the risk assessment along with the health and safety plan to your workforce. What needs to be done to implement the plan.
Recap the check stage, take a look at possible data types, what can be measures, and how can that help in seeing if your plan is implemented, if it’s working well.
You will look at why reviewing performance, acting on lessons and focusing on continual improvement is essential. Reflect on what you have learned and how you can use that in your workplace.
