You can now download our full IOSH Managing Safely Project Assignment Guide as an eBook to use on the go!
Here's a taster of what's inside:
Part of achieving your IOSH Managing Safely accreditation involves completing a project assessment about your workplace. To help you complete the assessment we have put together a 6 Part step-by-step guide.
Each stage of the process is covered thoroughly on our 4-day IOSH Managing Safely course, with plenty of time and opportunity to ask the trainer if you are not sure about anything. The course is arranged so that you are able to complete the project bit by bit over the four days.
The project assessment is based on your own work environment.
The person marking the assessment will not be the trainer who taught you and will not know anything about your workplace. While this gives you some valuable licence (which may be helpful) you will need to make sure you explain clearly things which may be obvious to you and those who work around you. You also need to be consistent as each part of the assessment relates to the others.
As with all assessments, the best advice is to read carefully what each of the sections requires and take your time.
To gain the accreditation there is also a multi format exam to complete; we've also put together some tips for completing the IOSH exam.
The project consists of a series of six forms you will need to complete and these follow a logical sequence.

Little's law forms a part of queuing theory and has deep implications for the 'Improve' aspect of DMAIC within Lean Six Sigma. It calculates the average wait for a customer or item within a transactionary process.
So what exactly is Little's law, how does it impact upon Six Sigma and why is it so useful and important?
Are you a new trainer? Does the idea of training a large group bring you out in a cold sweat? Is even picturing them naked just not helping to calm your nerves?
Well sweat no more and banish those nudes from your mind. There's a simple way to face groups and deal with the various challenges they may offer.
All it takes is an understanding of the dynamics of group development. Once you know how groups of people function and develop, it becomes simple to deal with them and simple to teach them.
We explore the subject of group development in depth on our Brighton-based Train the Trainer Course, which is the ideal course for those new to training looking to build their knowledge and confidence in the discipline.
So when facing groups in training, what you need to remember is that all groups will go through four stages of development. Here, I'll outline what those stages are and how best to deal with them from a trainer's perspective.
There are plenty of blog and Twitter lists around, but for the first time here is the most complete list of Project Management communities on the web.
If you're new to project management then this is a great way to learn from others in the field and pick up some helpful advice; of course the best way to get started it with our Project Management for Beginners Course!
These resources aren't just for beginners- many of the communities include very experienced project managers who are there to help others and work on the more complicated areas of the discipline. PRINCE2 Practitioners are common in the groups which make them the perfect location to get advice passing your exam.
Without further ado here's the list, which includes all the best places that project managers connect and hang out online.
