The ‘Managing Safely’ course is for those required to manage safely and effectively in compliance with both their organisation’s policy and best practice in health and safety, helping to standardise their operations.
There are no prerequisite entry requirements for this qualification, however students will find it helpful to have already achieved an awareness-level qualification to improve their potential end result. The course aims to ensure that safety requirements are appreciated by people employed as line managers, and to enable them to review their own departmental systems for safety, introducing new controls or implementing changes as appropriate to ensure safety in the workplace.
The course is 100% online including the exam which can be taken anytime; questions are comprised of short and multiple choice problems with a workplace assessment completed by the student and uploaded to the eLearning platform.
