 Who Should Attend

Leading Safely – essential learning for senior leaders.

Course Content

IOSH have designed the course in conjunction with business leaders to deliver content that will add value to you and your organisation. The session, delivered over five hours, can be tailored to your organisation, sector or geographical location, making it relevant to delegates from any industry and in every part of the world.  The stand-out feature of the session is the ability for delegates to benchmark their current and future safety and health vision and priorities in line with global models of safety, and to recognise good practice gathered from leading organisations from around the world.

The course helps to shape your organisational safety and health objectives
– Understand good practice from around the world
– Benchmark your performance against others
– Shape your safety and health vision and identify the steps you can take to achieve it.
Your company can be rewarded by:
– reduced accident rates, absence and sick leave
– increased productivity and profits
– improved reputation among suppliers, clients and partners
– reduced insurance premiums and legal costs
– better business continuity.

Leading Safely is right for you and your business
The course covers:
– safety and health and what it means for different leadership roles
– the responsibilities and behaviours of a leader
– what effective safety and health leadership looks like
– how to get things right
– how leaders can make improvements
– the benefits of effective safety and health leadership
Leading Safely will sharpen your skill-set and make you a more effective leader. It will give your organisation the expertise it needs to succeed.

Assessment & Award

Learners use the diagnostic tool, accessed via a mobile app, to identify their current safety and health position against a set of critical questions. The tool recommends the actions they should take. At the end of the course they make a commitment to a personal action plan to improve their own and their organisations’ safety and health management.
Delegates receive:
– an app to access their diagnostic tool/action planner
– access to a safety leadership community, with news from IOSH, and up-to-date discussions on themes in safety leadership, from trainers and delegates.


This is a one day event running from 8.30 am to 5 pm. The IOSH Leading Safely certificate does not have an expiry date although IOSH recommend that candidates undergo a refresher course every five years.


Typical fees for open courses are £220 plus VAT per person; however this can vary for in-house courses (dependant on location and numbers).


We run open IOSH Leading Safely courses regularly in our Training Centre in Rainham Kent or we are happy to travel to your location if suitable facilities are available.

A Polite Notice

It pays to be selective when booking training courses because not all training providers are what they appear to be. When booking an IOSH Leading Safely Course you need to feel assured that your training provider is fully approved to provide that training and is not then going to sub-contract the work.


Tutors manner was the foundation for the success of this course.  We will be booking more courses soon. Well done.
