More feedback on the IOSH tailored course approval service

"We recognised that theatre-land was crying out for a quality safety and health course. We knew any course we created needed to be unique and stand out. Our tailored course is largely based on IOSH's Managing safely syllabus, but we made some drastic changes to make it more industry-specific. We used animated theatre characters, and the videos within the course were filmed in theatres and on the Phantom of the Opera set. There was no doubt as to whether IOSH needed to approve our course. As far as we were concerned, it was a must – clients would see that the course meets industry standards."

Richard Beale, Chartered Safety Practitioner, RB Health and Safety Solutions Ltd

"Realising that there were no other coaching courses being marketed toward safety practitioners – and believing that coaching skills were absolutely vital for the profession – I wrote my own two-day Coaching for safety course. For me, if you’re going to market with a safety course, it absolutely has to have IOSH approval – it’s a no-brainer – so I submitted my programme to the tailored course approval team. I was delighted to discover that one of the team was herself a coach and not only enjoyed reading my material but could actually contribute ideas and suggestions which I hadn't considered. I think what impressed me most about the process though was how clearly the team communicated their requirements. There was very little to-ing and fro-ing. I submitted the work, the team fed back, I made the changes and that was about it – bish, bash, bosh. Having the IOSH badge has been vital in helping me promote Coaching for safety – I can’t imagine how difficult it might have been without it – and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the service to anyone thinking of developing a course."
