IOSH Managing Safely Refresher

Update and refresh you safety & health knowledge

The IOSH Managing Safely Refresher course gives people in positions of responsibility an overview of how to identify, evaluate and control workplace risks. It helps those responsible for the safety and welfare of other workers to assess and control workplace risks. This includes evaluating the safety systems already in place within your organisation.

This refresher course aims to revise key management responsibilities as outlined on the Managing Safely course and update candidate’s knowledge in line with any relevant changes to legislation, standards and good practice guidance.

Who is the course suitable for?

The course is aimed at anyone who has previously gained the IOSH Managing Safely qualification, and now wishes to refresh their knowledge.

It is recommended that delegates take this refresher training within three years of completion of the full IOSH Managing Safely Course.
