Working Safely

This course is for staff only and is provided by the Health & Safety Unit. Working Safely is a one-day course which provides a grounding in the essentials of health and safety. An introductory training course devised and monitored by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and presented by Aston University’s Health & Safety Unit. Successful completion of this course leads to the award of the IOSH Working Safely Certificate.

IOSH’s Working Safely training course is designed for people at any level in any sector, and meets the government’s guidelines for introductory health and safety training.

This course has been introduced at Aston as part of our Health and Safety Training Programme and is the standard training in basic health and safety awareness.

The course takes one day to complete and is delivered by Andrew Vickers and Darnette Cowan of the Health & Safety Unit. The course covers:-
  • Defining hazard and risk
  • Identifying common hazards
  • Improving safety performance
  • Protecting our environment
A buffet lunch is provided.

Outcomes :

Successful completion of this course leads to the award of the IOSH Working Safely Certificate.

There are two written assessments to complete at the end of the course. The first is a short multiple-choice question exercise. The second involves identifying a number of hazards from a series of photographs and deciding what to do about them. The whole course, including the assessments is completed in one day.

Assessments are marked in-house and then moderated by IOSH.

This is a full day's commitment; please carefully consider this prior to registering. We need a good size group to make running this course viable, and late delegate cancellations may mean the entire course being cancelled.
