Six different topics are being covered by the courses, which are aimed to give members the skills and competencies they require.
The topics are: conducting general risk assessments; modern COSHH management; noise measurement and management; board masterclass; legionella management and behavioural safety. Each topic will be covered three times during the pilot phase.
Three courses were held last month, with more being held this month.
Delegates who sat the modern COSHH management course on 11-12 October were impressed by the content.
Stuart Smith, environment, health and safety manager at Estee Lauder Whitman Laboratories, said: “It really crystallised the understanding that I had and it’s given me a number of methods and techniques for undertaking COSHH assessments going forward.”
Jason Georgopoullos, health and safety manager at Belfast Health and Social Care Trust, said: “The course was brilliant and very useful for me in my role at the trust. It is certainly something I would recommend to other IOSH members.”
