IOSH Approved Coaching for safety – Edinburgh

Our second open IOSH Approved Coaching for safety course north of the border will be at the Holiday Inn Edinburgh on Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th November. It seems like a long way off but we’re already taking bookings so if you’re interested in attending … don’t leave it too late. You can download a booking form here. What’s the course about? IOSH Approved Coaching for safety was designed to provide OSH practitioners with the skills that under-pin a collaborative and supportive style. Equipping your team with coaching skills will help them support their colleagues to achieve goals and solve problems but it will also help them to develop their colleagues. At a macro level, that’s how cultures can be changed, gradually gradually, developing the resources you have. Whilst the course was designed for practitioners, to complement the technical knowledge they acquire through NEBOSH or other similar courses, because it’s not a technical course itself, it’s really suitable for anyone and we often have seasoned safety professionals sat next to rookies new to the profession sat next to non-safety people and it works beautifully. Coaching for safety is a highly-participative course structured around a series of live coaching sessions involving real-life subject matter delegates bring themselves – there is absolutely no role play. It’s extremely engaging and we normally manage to have a few laughs too … which can’t be bad. You really should try it...
