IOSH Working Safely

What is special about this course?


A course for people at any level, in any sector, that need a grounding in health and safety. Ideal for introducing staff to why health and safety is important, Working safely shows how everyone can make a difference to their own wellbeing and that of others through everyday behaviours. Fun and interactive, the course focuses on best practice rather than legislation.

Recognised by CSCS as an equivalent to a Level 1 Award in health and safety in a construction environment.


The basic operative test consists of a computer based multiple choice test that assesses on various aspects of health and safety, hazards and environment issues related to the construction industry.
