‘Truly effective health and safety management requires competency across every facet of an organisation and through every level of the workforce.’ – (Managing for Health and Safety – HSG65)
The health and safety performance and legal compliance of an organisation is usually demonstrated by the level of commitment of its management team. In fact, managers are often criticised for failing to take their policy duties and legal responsibilities seriously. But what is often forgotten is that managers simply don’t have the underpinning knowledge and understanding of what is required to manage safety in their area of responsibility. This is why training is crucial to any organisation’s health and safety management success.
Aim of the Module
Managing Safety aims to give managers the essential information they need to manage health and safety in
their area of responsibility and control. At the end of the module they will be able to:
- Understand their responsibilities for health, safety and environment issues in the workplace and how to apply them
- Recognise the key components of a health and safety management system and how it is applied in an organisation
- Improve the safety performance of the organisation by ensuring risk assessments are undertaken and workplace precautions are put in place
- Ensure accident and incident investigations are undertaken, recorded and reported accurately
- Undertake monitoring and checking to ensure that workplace precautions are in place and work activities are being undertaken safely
Who is it for?
The course has been developed by Chartered health and safety practitioners who are also business managers. The result is a high quality training solution that gives managers the necessary tools to meet their health and safety obligations.
How is it Delivered?
Managing Safety can be delivered online or through a computer network to each manager at their desktop or laptop or other device. We can also provide the course to be integrated into a SCORM compliant LMS. The training can be completed at the manager’s own pace by ‘book marking’ and recording progress and returning to the training at a later stage. In delivering the training in this way the normal costs of training are reduced whilst still achieving the desired awareness and compliance with the organisation’s legal responsibilities.
Compliance Record Keeping Easily Solved
An invaluable feature of Praxis42 eLearning modules is our learning management system called the eSP, our eSolutions Platform. This solves the problem of compliance record keeping by recording all training and completion of courses and making these records available for you to view and manage electronically. No more struggling to find training records should you have a visit from the enforcing agency or an audit. Training certificates can be printed by the trainee once the course is completed and the end assessment successfully passed.
The Managing Safety course from Praxis42 helps managers and supervisors meet the demands of modern health and safety requirements by following the Health and Safety Executive’s Guidance ‘Managing for Health and Safety (HSG65).
