Course structure

The online Safety for Managers qualification is structured around seven real-life case studies. You will be guided through each of these real scenarios with a commentary by George Clarke, and in each one introduced to several new concepts, systems, hazards or legal requirements.

The syllabus focuses on what managers actually need to know and understand, rather than reciting lists, and with an emphasis on designing processes to prevent injuries and ill-health in the first place.

Some of the case studies are illustrated with films, and others with images and diagrams. All of them have innovative and exceptional quality interactive activities to demonstrate concepts and check your understanding.

There is academic support available during office hours should you need it, and you will receive a hard copy of the NCRQ Managers’ Reference Guide with your certificate when your qualification is awarded.

Assessment & certification

The online course is assessed by your completion of the online activities, and through online mini-assessments. The total assessment time should only take about 30 minutes.

Following completion, you will book a five minute validation interview with our team, who will check your photographic identification and ask a few questions to check you completed the course yourself.

You will then receive your NCRQ certificate in the post, together with a hard copy of the reference guide and lovely yellow NCRQ lanyard!

Why choose

NCRQ Safety for Managers

This qualification is aimed at managers and supervisors in any sector. It is designed to give those with no knowledge or experience of health and safety the awareness needed to manage their teams and operations in a safe way. Those who have some previous knowledge will also be challenged; NCRQ qualifications are designed to change mindsets and establish a positive, effective and business-centred approach to health and safety. By focussing on a learner’s understanding and application, reinforced by hard-hitting but real-life incidents, the NCRQ approach ensures that health and safety becomes embedded in the consciousness of managers and supervisors providing sustainable improvements in the workforce for years to come.

Like our Certificate and Diploma qualifications, we focus on genuine case studies and real-life application of health and safety principles and concepts to help managers understand the practicalities of keeping their employees and customers safe in diverse and changing environments

It has been developed with senior inspectors and specialists at the Health and Safety Executive to ensure that it meets the legal requirements for general management training. It also addresses many of the common failings of managers that actually lead to real accidents, rather than abstract concepts.

NCRQ transformed and revolutionised self directed learning for health and safety professionals. Now we are doing the same for managers and supervisors throughout the UK.
