IOSH Principles of Safety Management in Health Care

IOSH Principles of Safety Management in Healthcare was designed by PHSC and has been approved by IOSH. It integrates Healthcare Regulations with Health and Safety legislation to enable a joined-up approach and meet standards set by HSE and CQC.

More about IOSH Principles of Safety Management in Healthcare 

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 that we have experienced whilst helping our clients. Case studies are designed around a typical management system of Plan, Do Check Act and covers the main Principles of Safety Management in Healthcare.

This course has been approved by the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH), which is the UKs leading professional institution in safety management.

Suitable for:

Supervisors and managers who deal with health and safety issues as part of their general responsibilities within the healthcare sector.

As it is only two days duration, it enables healthcare professionals who need a recognised benchmark of health and safety competence to achieve an approved certificate, without having to take significant amounts of time out of the workplace.

Within the two days, we cover the primary health and safety management principles in a practical and sector-specific way. PHSC plc and its wholly owned group of companies are the only organisations who are approved to present this course. The course content can be tailored further to reflect specific areas of healthcare (eg care home management, NHS Trusts, private clinics, dentists etc).

By the end of the training delegates will be able to:

  • Understand the key legal requirements and standards to be achieved within a healthcare environment
  • Understand how CQC  and UK health and safety legislation requirements compare  and relate to each other
  • Understand how accidents occur, how to implement simple systems to prevent them
  • Know how to conduct an accident investigation and what to record, and how to use this to reassure staff and service users
  • Know how to conduct a risk assessment, and to implement a risk assessment strategy throughout your demised area of authority.
  • Identify the key hazards in the healthcare environment and the management and controls of each (eg manual handling, management of aggression)
  • Know how to implement simple safety systems into other business initiatives and responsibilities to enable an integrated approach to safety when planning, implementing, monitoring and reviewing your systems.

Two days

Half hour multi-choice examination, and a mini risk assessment project completed within the training time.

Why we designed this course

Nursing home

Having worked within the care profession for many years, we became increasingly aware of frustration experienced by care professionals. These related to the growing burden for professionals to demonstrate compliance with Healthcare legislation and Health and Safety legislation. Compliance is a key risk area within the sector. 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 the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). Although the institution offers a healthcare version of their IOSH Managing Safely Course, it was still too generic and managers simply couldn’t afford to take four days out of their busy work schedules.

So we decided to design something that links and integrates Healthcare Legislation with Health and Safety legislation to help managers avoid developing parallel systems or duplicating work.
