IOSH visited Virgin Atlantic’s headquarters in Crawley, England in October to learn more about how the organisation is improving its workers’ awareness of safety and health through in-house delivery of IOSH’s Managing Safely course.
Managing Safely is the market-leading health and safety course for line managers, designed to integrate safety and health within an organisation by improving safety awareness and enhancing its reputation across its supply chain.
“Managing Safely has been fantastic for further embedding safety and health in Virgin,” said Matt Wells CMIOSH, who works in health and safety with Virgin Atlantic. “The course has raised awareness, provided workers with a broad understanding of why safety and health is important and has helped to drive up standards across the organisation.”
Rachel Luff, course delegate and workshop supervisor at Virgin Atlantic, said: “Managing Safely improved my understanding of safety and health. It opens your eyes and helps you to look at things a bit differently. The course encourages you to think about how you can manage the task safely every time you approach a job, how you can improve processes, and the importance of making sure yourself and colleagues are operating safely at all times.”
