About IOSH Managing Safely Refresher

The IOSH Managing Safely Refresher course is designed for those who have completed Managing Safely and would like to review the essential points covered.

Health and safety management is not a one off. In order to be successful, it must be an ongoing system adapting along with your hazards and changing situations. This course is designed to ensure the systems you have in place remain effective.

Why Is IOSH Managing Safely Refresher Course Important?

Almost 693,000 workers sustained non-fatal injuries in the workplace during 2019/20, while there were 111 fatal incidents. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) reported a cost of £19,000 per case of ill health and £1.7 million per workplace fatality in 2018/19.

Adequate supervision, effective management, and monitoring are vital to reducing these numbers as low as possible. Employers and organisations have a financial and legal duty to ensure that their managers have the skills and training to ensure health and safety.
