IOSH Managing Health & Safety Risks in the Education Sector  

The Education sector presents a variety of unique hazards and risks.

This exclusive course has been specially designed by Ellis Whittam based on our extensive knowledge and experience of working with schools, colleges and other education and training providers. Largely equivalent to the IOSH Managing Safely ocourse, it focuses solely on the Education sector and is compressed into two days in recognition of the limited time you have available.
