Course overview

This course is essential for anyone new to the role of office or facilities manager and those with specific responsibilities for ensuring the safety of the building(s) that the business operates from.

There is a legal obligation upon businesses to ensure that staff are safe, healthy and well at work, which includes the need to ensure that certain tasks are carried out on a regular basis. If you have been tasked with ensuring that your business meets the legal requirements of staying compliant with Standards such as ISO 14001 (environmental) or ISO 45001 (health and safety) this is an essential training event for you. 

This course has been designed to give office managers and facilities professionals the essential information they need to understand what is required of them and the skills to carry out the vital tasks. It will provide practical guidance on what their organisation needs in place, and give them the knowledge and confidence they need to succeed in their role.

This training course is part of our collection of Facilities Management Training Courses which offer a wide range of topics to help assist you in navigating potential risks in relation to fire safety, industrial accidents and all the vital aspects of facilities and property management.

Benefits of attending

By attending this event you will:

  • Understand the main duties and responsibilities required in the facilities management role
  • Learn how to use a compliance calendar to enhance your effectiveness
  • Get to grips with organising audits and inspections
  • Master the skills of keeping and maintaining records

Delegates will gain a comprehensive overview of tasks that need to be carried out within typical office premises and they will be signposted to useful websites, where they can gain additional (free) information about those tasks.

The expert trainer will also provide a compliance calendar that delegates will be able to use within their own organisations. This very useful tool will help monitor responsibilities and show a level of visibility of upcoming tasks. Along with detailed instructions, this tool will ensure you can succeed in the facilities management role. 

Delegates will also learn about additional tools such as audit and inspection templates, and understand what type of records must be kept in relation to each of the activities covered.
