Course modules

There are eight individual modules:

1. Introducing 'managing safely': this module makes it clear that managers are accountable for their teams and makes a persuasive case for managing safely.

2. Assessing risks: this module defines and demystifies 'risk' and 'risk assessment'. Risk assessments and a simple scoring system are introduced, and delegates carry out a series of assessments which are compelted and returned after the course.

3. Controlling risks: this session tackles cutting down risks, concentrating on the best techniques to control key risks and how to choose the best method.

4. Understanding your responsibilities: this module looks at the demands of the law and how the legal system works, and it introduces a health and safety management system.

5. Identifying hazards: all main issues any organisation has to deal with - entrances and exits; work traffic; fire; chemicals; electricity; physical and verbal abuse; bullying; stress; noise; housekeeping and the working environment; slips, trips and falls; working at height; computers; and manual handling - are covered in this module.

6. Investigating accidents and incidents: the session starts with why accidents should be investigated, and goes on to cover why things go wrong and how to carry out an investigation when they do.

7. Measuring performance: this module explains how checking performance can help to improve health and safety. Delegates learn how to develop basic performance indicators, and get to grips with auditing and proactive and reactive measuring.

8. Protecting our environment: a short but effective introduction to waste and pollution leads into a look at how organisations and individual managers can get involved in reducing environmental impacts.
