BSC launches e-learning IOSH Working Safely course

12 March 2012

Online health and safety training is now available from the British Safety Council (BSC). The Working Safely e-learning course from the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) is designed to provide risk management training and an understanding of hazards at all levels of expertise and in all sectors.

It has now been launched as an online course from the BSC and focuses on best practice worldwide, rather than focusing on UK legislation alone. On completion, students are awarded an IOSH certificate. 
Delivered over the internet, the course brings home exactly why health and safety is such an important part of everyone's job, providing the information needed to encourage people to work safely. It covers personal responsibilities for working safely; identifying common hazards at work; the organisation's responsibilities for protecting workers and others from harm; basic risk assessment principles; basic risk controls for different situations; and the importance of reporting incidents and near misses. There is also a session on how to prevent pollution and minimise waste, meaning that health and safety and environmental basics are covered in a single course.
BSC director of qualifications and standards John Phillips said the e-learning course will help an organisation to develop a positive safety culture, and that workers can tailor learning to suit their own timetables, at work or at home.
