IOSH Working Safely Course

The IOSH Working Safely course is a basic introductory health and safety course, which will enable workers to ensure that their individual and collective actions contribute to safety in the workplace and that they understand their responsibilities. This nationally recognised qualification is 1-day in duration and is for all levels of personnel.

Can I Attend During COVID-19 / Lockdown?

It is still possible to attend the IOSH Working Safely course in a traditional classroom setting during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it is also possible to attend the training via virtual learning if preferred. This study method involves studying at home or in the workplace using video technology assisted by a live tutor.
