Workplace Safety Manager I

Workplace Safety Manager I

This course covers safety management systems in the workplace. It offers participants the opportunity to obtain a working knowledge of the elements that need to be applied in an organisation to develop and maintain a safe working environment.

Combining formal lectures and discussions, Workplace Safety Manager I will give you the skills, confidence and qualifications to:

  • Describe the provisions of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2005 and the General Applications Regulations 2017.
  • Define hazards and risks and describe the legal requirements for risk assessment. How is the hierarchy of control used to control risk?
  • Assess an area and determine if the protective and preventative measures employed reduce the risk assessment to a manageable level.
  • Describe the elements which constitute a safety management system and the techniques used to review it.
  • Understand that successful delivery of safety management cannot be achieved by one-off interventions. A sustained and systematic approach is necessary.
  • State statutory requirements for reporting of accidents and procedures for checking non reporting of accidents and near misses.
  • Describe methods of trend and epidemiological analysis data for reactive monitoring.
  • Develop methods and techniques to carry out quantitative and qualitative risk assessments and understand why judgement is necessary.


The course will be delivered over five days with 30 hours of lectures. Students will need to complete a written examination within a week of completion. They will also need to complete 70 hours of additional work and submit a relevant project within six weeks of the written examination.
