      IOSH Principles of Safety Management in Health Care Training Course

      IOSH Principles of Safety Management in Healthcare was designed by PHSC and has been approved by IOSH, which is the UKs leading professional institution in safety management. This course seamlessly merges healthcare regulations with health and safety legislation, enabling a cohesive strategy to meet HSE and CQC standards.

      PHSC plc and its wholly owned group of companies are the only organisations who are approved to present this course. We selected the key issues that relate to care providers and designed a practical workshop, whereby managers apply what they are learning to real-life situations. Case studies are designed around a typical management system of Plan, Do, Check, Act and covers the main Principles of Safety Management in Healthcare.

      Why Attend?

      If you're a healthcare professional seeking a benchmark of health and safety competence, our two-day course is designed for you. This course will allow you to obtain a recognised certificate while minimising workplace absence.

      Within the two days, we cover the primary health and safety management principles in a practical and sector-specific way. The course content can be tailored further to reflect specific areas of healthcare (eg care home management, NHS Trusts, private clinics, dentists etc).

      Why we designed this course

      Nursing home

      Years of experience in the care profession led us to recognise the challenges faced by care professionals in demonstrating compliance with healthcare and safety legislation and health and safety legislation. It can be very time consuming and confusing for a busy manager who has several roles to identify what is needed to comply, how to do it effectively in practice, and also how to evidence it has been done.

      When researching availability of approved training, we discovered there were no specialist courses targeted for managers/supervisors that were bespoke to the healthcare profession, and the only approved course for managers was four days duration from IOSH and managers simply couldn’t afford to take four days out of their busy work schedules.

      Our course bridges the gap by integrating Healthcare Legislation with Health and Safety legislation and providing tailored, sector-specific training. The course helps managers to avoid duplicating efforts and navigate the complexities of compliance efficiently.
