Hi,

Has anyone taken this course by any chance? I try to stay away from BBS and off the shelf solutions because I believe it's become a mash-up of terms and methodologies.

I would, however, be interested in a decent learning process on leadership and I stumbled onto this a while back. Couldn't find much info on it and I don't want to part with 235 pounds without a review.

Any thoughts or opinions would be welcomed. (about the training, preferably, not the man behind it)

Not aware of any Behavioural Safety courses by IOSH for leaders. They do a Leading Safely course which is based on the Plan/Do/Check/Act management system. This has only a short face-to-face element and is based around identifying weaknesses, and then making a 'personal committment' on how and when you will address these.

I was refering to this course. Seeing how it's IOSH accredited, I hope I'm not breaking any forum rules.

Looks really expensive for a elearning course. I did an on-line Behavioural Safety course for free from the OU.

From my point of view you would be better off doing a Psychology HE Cert or Diploma...and applying the principles to your workplace...that was the route I took and ended up doing my MSc in Psychology...it gave me a better understanding of human behaviour than any BBS course could...

I was thinking about that, but I'm currently enrolled into something else. I guess, I'll dish it out and self study until I have the resources for a psych degree.

As I understand it this is a 2-day equivalent online course aimed at directors, business leaders etc. Not so expensive, comparatively. I didn't think it was specifically aimed at (budding) safety practitioners. I have suggested it to my boss, to try to 'soften' his well-intentioned but rule-driven approach to engaging with the workers.

Psychology, human behaviours, influencing skills etc should be part of any SP training, not necessarily to Diploma level, and if not - well - reading on and around the subject has done well for me.

I completed the course at the beginning of the year. It certainly gave me some food for thought. I liked the way it looks at some old H&S favorite ideas and explores new ways of using them. You can skip through it in a few hours, but if you take the time to do all the background reading that comes with, it takes a while. Some of the things it talks about I have put into practice immediately – others I am still working on how to best use. Don’t expect it to give you a magic pill solution; you will only get out of it what you put into it, and a lot will depend on your knowledge in the first place.

I raised a couple of concerns about some of the introduction – one of the links was to the wrong site, and to give then credit I got a phone call back from them to say they did not know how the link had been changed, but I was right, and they were looking into it.

The same people offer this as a taught course – which I think would be a much better option; I prefer face to face training every time if given a chance, but at least this way, I could dip in and out when I had the time.

Price-wise I suppose it's in line with similar length courses.

I've just completed the course and Brian gives a good outline of it. You can indeed try and skip through it in 4-6 hours, but there's much more to learn if you watch the videos and read and digest all of the uploaded materials. I think I spent about 16 hours in all studying it. It's really not aimed at directors or business leaders, and I'd say its also not particularly aimed at "budding" practitioners as you will need some experience and knowledge to benefit from what it is trying to impart.

There's a lot of different schools of thought as to what might work in terms of behavioural safety, but in my experience a lot depends on the culture of a place and the course suggests various tools that you could use to improve your lot. As Brian says, the course is not a silver bullet and you will need to work out a strategy from what it is trying to tell you. You'll need that to pass the course anyway, as you have to tell them at the end what you will do differently as a result of taking the course! As well as the exam.

Price-wise, I see that it is now half price (I thought I was getting a good deal in February with £70 off.....), so now there's no real excuse to not do it!

I do consider all the thoughts you have offered to your post. They're truly persuading and can work. I appreciated the experience part that you shared. Thank you for sharing this amazing information.

Leslie - if you wish to spread your commercial links, perhaps you could just coo off.
