IOSH - Working Safely

Working safely is a high-impact programme designed to get people fully involved. The first-class, jargon-free content is based on what people need to know in practice. Working safely is for people working at any level, in any sector, who need grounding in the essentials of health and safety. It gives everyone at work an understanding of why they must 'work safely'.

Working safely meets the Governments guidelines for introductory health and safety training and is a 100% match to the Health and Safety Executives passport syllabus.

The working safely course is recognised by CSCS as an equivalent to a level 1 award in health and safety in a construction environment. Delegates who successfully complete the course can apply for a CSCS green Labourer card once they have also passed the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Operatives Test.
