Who should attend?
This IOSH training course is aimed at employees who have had little or no training on health and safety and those wanting to improve best practice in the workplace.
Many people that study the IOSH Managing Safely qualification go on to study for a NEBOSH Certificate (General, International, Construction and/or Fire Certificates).
