- Continuity for your business
How is the Course Graded?
Before completing the IOSH Leading Safely course, participants will use a special diagnostic tool, accessed via smartphone application. This tool will, using a series of questions, establish the current health and safety position of the learner, before presenting them with recommendations for future action. At the end of the course, the learner will put together a ‘personal action plan’, charting the shortest route between their current and ideal health and safety positions.
What will Learners Get?
The course will see learners use a smartphone app to access their special diagnostic tool. But this isn’t the only benefit they’ll be able to take away; with regular access to health and safety leadership, advice and commentary, learners will be able to keep abreast of developments in the industry and remain at the cutting edge of health and safety.
How Long is the Course?
The IOSH Leading Safely course lasts for around five hours, and so you’ll need to set aside an entire day.
