If you have already invested the time and money in your team leaders completing the IOSH Managing Safely course, you want to keep them up-to-date with their health and safety responsibilities, don’t you?. Of course. So, your next question is, how much is it going to cost then?
If you or your staff have already taken an IOSH accredited Managing Safely course in the past few years, this Refresher course will definitely be suitable for you. Having already committed three days /30 hours to learning how to manage your health and safety responsibilities in the full IOSH Managing Safely course, do your actions demonstrate good safety management practice in your job?
If you are not 100% confident of how to implement your safety responsibilities as a manager or feel, you could do with a reminder, then read on.
Can you imagine life without modern technology, such as computers, smart phones and tablets? I can, it does not seem that long ago when I was in work and the telephone was in a fixed place and we used hand written documents and calculators. How things have changed in the past 25 years!
Modern equipment has allowed us all to work faster and become more productive in our working lives. But, there is a problem, our bodies can be damaged by being stuck in one position for long periods, our hands are not evolved to move very rapidly repeatedly, and our eyes become strained through staring at a screen for long periods.
We now have a greater awareness of the problems that using display screen equipment (DSE) incorrectly can cause and I will go through them, the responsibilities of employers and how to minimise the risk.
If you're considering taking the IEMA Foundation Certificate, you'll probably be wondering what the exams are like. What do I have to do? How hard are they? What are my chances of passing? These are all valid questions that our learners ask before they book onto their course.
Don't panic if you have failed one or more of your NEBOSH Certificate exams. There are a couple of options available on what next to do. This post will offer the practical steps to take which will help you get fully qualified and on the road to advancing your career as smoothly and stress-free as possible.
The great thing about the IEMA Foundation Certificate is that it’s designed specifically for those new to the subject. It covers a range of topics so that you get a broad understanding of the whole sustainability agenda and the sort of skills you’ll need to work within the field.
Following David Attenborough’s ‘Blue Planet’ programme, you would have been living in a parallel universe to not become aware of the intense anger felt regarding plastics in the ocean. But those of us who are environmental professionals have seen this growing, gradually over many years, and found it frustrating that it takes a TV programme to engage (or should that be enrage) people. The cry from us all is that something needs to be done, at a personal and corporate level.
The role of health and safety has traditionally been more involved in safety within the organisation rather than health. Safety outcomes are often more immediate and therefore perhaps easier to recognise and manage, whereas health outcomes are often delayed and the effects are not seen or felt for a longer period of time. This influences how we prioritise our actions and safety is more often than not, at the top of the list.
Most people thinking about taking a qualification want to know 2 things; how much will it cost me? how long will it take me? One of the many advantages of the NEBOSH General Certificate is its flexibility. Being able to take the course online or in a classroom means you can spend as much or as little time as you need to complete the course.
Did you know that almost one in three environmental and sustainability professionals consider themselves career changers? For some, sustainability became essential in their role and that led them to change paths. Others had a passion for environment and sustainability issues which they decided pursue.
