IOSH Working Safely Training Course

The IOSH Working Safely course is designed to train up employees to abide by essential health and safety practices in the workplace. Through the one-day training course, delegates will develop health & safety awareness skills to identify and deal with common hazards and learn why this is important to maintaining a productive and safe working environment.

Developed by leading health and safety membership organisation, the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), IOSH Working Safely is an incredibly valuable certification that is available to all employees from any industry sector. 

At Grow Training, we can offer the course at our training centre, in-house at your business premises or online via our virtual classroom learning environment.

What is the IOSH Working Safely course?

IOSH Working Safely is one of the most popular introductory health and safety training courses at Grow Training. It’s a flexible course that can be completed both in-house and online and it only lasts one day, meaning employees can get stuck into implementing their learnings the next day.

The IOSH Working Safely course is recognised as an equivalent to the Health and Safety Executive’s ‘Passport’ syllabus. It’s designed to equip employees with a basic knowledge and understanding of relevant health and safety practices, in line with the Government’s guidelines, that ensures the well-being of the individual and the colleagues around them. 

Am I eligible for the IOSH Working Safely course?

The IOSH Working Safely course is open to all employees from any size of organisation in any industry sector. There are no prerequisites for the course.

Why take the IOSH Working Safely Course

IOSH Working Safely is an internationally recognised certification. Encouraging your employees to complete the qualification demonstrates your commitment to good health and safety practice, which will in turn boost the reputation of your business.

Furthermore, employees will gain the knowledge base to differentiate between hazards and risks, giving them the confidence to deal with issues that may arise.

Completing the course will also ensure that employees as individuals and the company as a whole have the knowledge to comply with HSE legislation

Improved awareness of workplace health and safety regulations also has a knock-on effect on productivity levels. Abiding by best health and safety will lead to fewer injuries and sick days and fosters a healthier, happier working environment.


What is covered in the IOSH Working Safely course?

The IOSH Working Safely course content is split into 4 main modules. The course covers:

  • Module 1: Introducing working safely
  • Module 2: Defining hazard and risk
  • Module 3: Identifying common hazards
  • Module 4: Improving safety performance

At the end of the training course, employees will: 

  • Understand the importance of working safely.
  • Be able to differentiate between common hazards & risks.
  • Be competent at identifying and controlling hazards & risks.
  • Understand the importance of safety performance within the workplace and how to improve it.

How is the IOSH Working Safely assessed?

The IOSH Working Safely course assessment is two-fold. There is a 10 question multiple-choice test and a practical hazard-spotting exercise, each of which lasts 15 minutes.

If you take part in the classroom-based training course, both the assessments will be completed at the end of the course. 

If you’re completing the eLearning course, both of the assessments must be completed within five months of registering for the course.
