IOSH Working Safely covers the essentials of health and safety in the workplace. It is aimed at all workers in all types of organisation. It focuses on best practice rather than legislation.
Upon successful completion of the course and assessment, students are awarded a Working Safely certificate from the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), the world’s largest health and safety membership organisation.
Please note: As of May 2017 Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) will no longer accept IOSH Working Safely certificates achieved via the online course and e-learning assessment as a route to obtaining the green Labourer card.
