IOSH Working Safely



The Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) Working Safely training course has now been recognised as an equivalent to a Level 1 Award in health & safety in a construction environment. This means that delegates who successfully complete Working safely can apply for a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) green labourer card once they have also passed the CITB health, safety and environment operative test. This course is widely recognised, and offers everyone an understanding of why they must ‘work safely’. It shows what they need to know – and are perhaps reluctant to learn about – in a refreshingly informal way. Ouch trainers use their extensive knowledge and practical experience to deliver an interactive enjoyable learning experience for all delegates.

Who is it for?

The IOSH Working safely course is aimed at people at any level. Working safely isn’t supposed to turn delegates into safety experts. It focuses on why health and safety is important, and how individuals can make a real difference to the well-being of themselves and others through changing their behaviour.

Topics covered

• Introducing “Working safely”
• Defining hazard and risk
• Identifying common hazards
• Improving safety performance
• Protecting our environment

Course duration

6 hours (normally one day)


Multiple choice examination and a series of hazard spotting exercises. Delegates will receive an IOSH Working Safely certificate or credit-card sized passport card.


“This course has given me a broader understanding of health and safety issues. The trainer was great at keeping the group engaged, using lots of ‘real life’ examples to explain key topic areas.”

Lewis Miller, Labourer.

A new health & safety myth: University bans the throwing of mortar boards on graduation day!
The university collected the hats after the graduates ceremony finished, to avoid them throwing their caps into the air, they do this because of health and safety issues.
