Virtual IOSH Working Safely Online Course
Due to extraordinary circumstances impacting the regular provision of health and safety training the IOSH Working Safely ‘Virtual Trainer’ course is designed to maintain a level of training in the industry for existing workers, ensuring a continued understanding of legislative changes and their impact on the workplace.
Using Video Technology
It is permitted to deliver the IOSH Working Safely course remotely via video technology solution. The training will follow the same curriculum as the classroom course and deliver the same standard of training meeting all examination body rules. Minimum delegate numbers for the course may be reduced for the period the emergency training provision is in place. To manage remote training effectively, the maximum number of delegates allowed may also be reduced.
