IOSH Managing Occupational Health & Wellbeing

Cost: £180 per person

An organisation that is healthy is more likely to be more productive. It gains the benefits of a flexible, dynamic workforce that remains competitive in today's challenging climate. Both employers and employees reap the rewards of a healthy workforce.

We're not talking about financial health and wealth, although they follow as consequence and cause at the same time. We're talking about employee health and wellbeing and a management mindset that fosters them.

The IOSH Occupational Health and Wellbeing course explores that ethos. Moreover, it teaches delegates how to implement the theory to benefit from the outcomes in real time.

Who should attend this course?

This IOSH course is for managers and supervisors in any industry sector or organisation type. We will be delivering the course from the 11th March 2019, onward.

It empowers leaders with knowledge to help improve health and wellbeing throughout their organisation. It also arms them with the tools to help them deliver results to a willing workforce.

What the course covers.

Today, most companies address the safety risks within their organisation without a second thought. But they tend not to pay the same attention to the health and wellbeing of their workforce.

Labour Force Study Figures show that in 2017-18, 1.4 million UK workers suffered from a work-related ill health issue. 44% of those were assigned to stress, anxiety and depression. Over 71,000 workers suffered a RIDDOR reportable accident.

Healthy company

Delegates learn about health management and why it makes good business sense to manage occupational health and wellbeing in the workplace. They also learn what a 'health needs assessment' is and the key considerations they should take into account when carrying one out.

Health Risk Assessment

An introduction to the five health hazard categories. The course looks at the causes of work-related health hazards in each category and their impact. Through an interactive exercise, delegates carry out their own health risk assessment and compile an action plan to monitor health risks

Fitness for work

An examination of the different types of non-work related conditions and how they can affect fitness for work. We discuss the importance of managing fluctuations in people's health and the benefits of getting people back to work.

Employee Wellbeing

Delegates learn what a 'wellbeing strategy' includes. Then we look at how introducing and promoting a wellbeing programme can influence and add value to an organisation.

Course outcomes and benefits

This course gives delegates the skills and knowledge they need to keep their teams healthy at work. More importantly, it explains how they can implement what they learn and get the workforce on side through:

  • Improving the company's reputation and giving them a competitive edge;
  • Helping to achieve a healthier and more productive workforce;
  • Empowering delegates to conduct a workplace health risk assessment;
  • Instructing delegates how to develop a health needs action plan;
  • Better managing employee health conditions;
  • Improving organisation-wide understanding of employee wellbeing;
  • Reducing sickness absence;
  • Increasing staff retention, leading to greater job satisfaction;
  • Reducing costs as a result of reducing injuries and ill health;
  • Reducing health insurance premiums due to a reduction in claims;
  • Reducing presenteeism and the need for employees to feel they have to work even when they're ill.

Successful delegates attain the IOSH Managing Occupational Health and Wellbeing certificate.
