If you are thinking about doing a short health and safety course for team leaders such as IOSH Managing Safely but you are worried about how hard it will be to pass, read this post to reassure you that you can do it!
The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health may not exactly roll off the tongue, but it plays a crucial role in protecting workers all over the world. IOSH - as it is more commonly referred to - is a membership organisation with a difference, one leading the way when it comes to health and safety practices in the workplace.
Being a manager or supervisor isn’t just about being ‘important’ or ‘in charge’, it is also about taking responsibility for those around you. Responsibility is a trait that all successful managers must have and something employees look for in their leaders.
Health and safety management is something that affects every business, no matter the size or industry. All workers have a right to work in an environment where risks to their health and safety are kept to a minimum and one of the best ways of ensuring this in a business is to make managers and team leaders aware of their responsibilities.
