This qualification is aimed at people whose job it is to directly oversee the delivery of health and safety measures in their workplace. It is provided either as a course with classroom teaching (centres in Manchester, Birmingham and London on set dates throughout the year); in-house training, which is particularly helpful in certain circumstances with very specific health and safety needs; and online. The last option is very helpful for those who have difficulty finding the necessary time away from work to study and so is of particular benefit for those who are taking the qualification to get promotion or a job change. All three methods of course delivery end with exams, both written and practical and all must be passed to end with the awarding of the diploma in occupational safety and health. The qualification meets the academic requirement for graduate membership of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (Grad IOSH). Health and safety comes from the top and so having managers and supervisors who have a very strong grounding in all of the practices and legislation of the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) guidelines and requirements is essential.
Well-trained managers means a safer workforce
Well-trained staff might be or however well-maintained equipment is, it is also essential that someone is keeping up with changes in the law. Even when everyone is up to speed though, accidents can happen and if you have been a victim of a workplace incident or have become ill with a workplace related illness, you may have a claim for compensation. You will need to be able to prove negligence on the part of another, but assuming this to be the case, you will probably by eligible to make a claim.
