The role of 'manager' encompasses health and wellbeing like never before. In response to the new need, IOSH has put together a new course, Managing Occupational Health and Wellbeing.

There are obvious benefits for employers who have more rounded staff. But managers who attend will also become more aware of human factors in (and outside) the workplace.

Course overview

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.

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.

Course delivery

Next training date: Monday 10th February 2020, 9am-4pm, MOHS Workplace Health 

Maximum 12 people; first come, first served. Please email to book your place.

We can also delivery this course at a client's premises for up to 6 delegates for £800 +VAT; or for 10 delegates for £1,300 +VAT

Who should attend this course?

This IOSH course is for managers and supervisors in any industry sector or organisation type.

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.


Based on the learning outcomes, delegates are assessed in two ways:

  • Knowledge and comprehension:
    • Learners must sit a 30 minute closed book examination, which consists of 20 questions in a variety of formats;
  • Practical application of learning:
    • Learners must complete a workplace health risk assessment using the standard IOSH form. They must complete that form within two weeks of the end of the course.

Course dates

Next training date is Monday 10th February held at MOHS Workplace Health, further dates to be advised; please email for more detailed information.
