IOSH Managing Safely Training

At Robinson Manufacturing Limited (RML) we have renewed our IOSH Managing Safely training provider license for another year. This has enabled Head of HSEQ, Matt Davies, to deliver the IOSH Managing Safely training to members of the Senior Leadership Team, Supervisors and team leaders. RML has also allowed for non-managerial delegates to attend the course.

The IOSH Managing Safely training course is a 3-day course that has been running at our Wellingborough headquarters this week from the 8th– 10th February 2021.

The IOSH Managing Safely training consisted of individuals from different departments and roles, from across the business. The course’s delegates were:

  • Darren Cross, Head of Production Oversight
  • Matt Jones, Team Leader
  • Stuart Penn, Team Leader
  • Isabelle Bull, Kickstarter HR Administrator

Due to social distancing the IOSH Managing Safely training ran with fewer people than normal, however Simon Kidney CEO was insistent that the training went ahead in smaller groups than not at all.

Head of HSEQ, Matt Davies, comments about his experience running the course:

“It’s always good to get people from different areas of the business on the health and safety courses. It’s a great opportunity to promote health and safety in a positive manner and give employees up-to-date health and safety information. The smaller groups have given us the opportunity to have more discussions on different Health & Safety subject matters.”

Feedback on the meeting has been positive. Kickstarter and HR Administrator, Isabelle Bull, commented about what she has learnt:

“One of the reasons I wanted to do the IOSH training is because I am now working closely with HSEQ Coordinator Emma Carr, sorting out training requirements for production operatives across our 7 sites, ensuring certificates of competency are current and that any refresher training is delivered in good time. It helped me gain an idea of health and safety requirements to help better understand the health and safety aspects of my role. I now have a better understanding of risk assessments and have a better understanding of the legal aspects and requirements of Health & Safety.” She continued: “For example, if there is an incident on the shop floor, I would feel more confident assisting with an investigation or should an employee suffer an accident I would want to see risk assessments, training records and any other applicable information.”
