Covered in this Course

The Health and Safety Training for Managers & Supervisors course is broken down into 3 sections.

1) The 10 Steps

This section outlines the 10 things that all businesses must do, including setting up a health and safety policy, assessing risks in the workplace, providing training and information and ensuring there is adequate first aid cover.

2) Legislation relating to Health and Safety

Here we go through the various relevant pieces of legislation, starting with the 3 general pieces of legislation:

  • The Health and Safety at Work Act
  • The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations
  • The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations

The section then moves onto the specific safety areas - from fire safety law and first aid requirements to noise, vibration and electricity and many other in between, explaining the dangers that employees may face and what should be done.

This section also touches on very specific health and safety areas which are relevant to some organisations, but not others - such as Asbestos, Gas safety and Work at Height.

3) Health and Safety Myths

Health and safety legislation is often misinterpreted or used as an excuse for an unpopular decision and this causes GENUINE health and safety issues to get pushed out of the spotlight.

Many people believe the HSE and health and safety laws are responsible for banning all sorts of things, such as banning conkers in the playground, office workers banned from putting up office Christmas decorations and banning the wearing of flip-flops in offices. These are NOT laws, they are simply internal decisions which management WANT to happen and the easiest way to get a rule through without argument is to blame the HSE or health and safety regulations. In actual fact the HSE has banned very little, aside from a few high-risk things, such as asbestos, which kills 4000 people each year.

A very high rating in its presentation .

I found this programme was very informative in respect of all the aspects of health and safety and has given me a wider perspective of the need to be vigilant at all times to enable myself and work colleagues a safe environment to work in.

Good course

No summary provided

Easy to follow

No summary provided

Comprehensive but not overboard on info.

A good overview of the health and safety expectations of line managers in the workplace. This is not as effective as for example 'IOSH Managing Safely' but it is not intended to replace that training, but simply to provide additional depth of understanding. A good training session worthy of the investment.

Legislations relating to Health and Safety Management

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work. Take a look at relevant legislation below.

The Health and Safety at Work Act & The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 set out the general duties employers have toward employees and members of the public, and the duties employees have to themselves and others. Any director, manager, secretary or similar officer can be held responsible for breaches of these Acts. 

Essentially, the law states that everyone must take ‘reasonably practicable’ precautions and actions to reduce risk in their workplace, as well as appointing competent people to specific Health and Safety duties and providing appropriate information and training.

Every employer must ensure that their employees are provided with adequate health and safety training

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, Chapter 13 (2)

Every employer shall make and give effect to such arrangements as are appropriate, having regard to the nature of his activities and the size of his undertaking, for the effective planning, organisation, control, monitoring and review of the preventive and protective measures.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, Section 5 (1)
