Keeping The Industry Safe, the GGF’s Brand New IOSH Approved Managing Safely In The Glass & Glazing Industry Training Course

For a number of years, the GGF Training Academy has provided the GGF community and the wider sector with a unique opportunity to ensure their staff are equipped with the correct skill set to carry out their job to an industry leading standard.

The ability to retain top staff, futureproof your business and bring in the next generation of talented workers is at the forefront of what the GGF and FENSA are looking to accomplish on behalf of the glass and glazing industry.

Which is why the GGF are launching a brand new training course to the sector. GGF Group Health, Safety, and Environment Manager, Lauren Mawford, has been working on a brand new IOSH Approved Managing Safely in the Glass and Glazing Industry training course.  From early 2024, GGF Group Members will be able to take advantage of an exclusive course, run by the GGF and approved by an internationally recognised institution, IOSH.

Who are IOSH?

IOSH stands for The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health. It is an internationally recognised body for Health and Safety.

– They set national standards to be adhered to

– They are an awarding body for H&S qualifications

– They facilitate and approve health and safety training in 130 countries

– They champion occupational H&S issues and advise government

Who Is It For?

This is an awareness course for those who manage others and manage risk and resources. The aim is to give directors, managers, and supervisors an understanding of everyone’s safety and health responsibilities in the workplace. The course will enable you to recognise how you can influence, control and monitor risk to improve safety and health issues in your workplace.

What Should Those On The Course Expect?

This is a 22 hour, 3 day course, based in the classroom with an end point assessment. Having completed the course, delegates should expect to have the ability to:-

– Describe the key reasons to manage safety and health in the workplace

– Define the key terms relating to safety and health

– Identify how the law can have an impact on safety and health in the workplace

The course will be run at the GGF offices in London.

Leading The Way

The IOSH approved ‘Managing Safely In The Glass & Glazing Industry’ training course is one of a kind in our industry. It is the only IOSH approved course that has been specifically tailored to our sector and only the GGF are licensed to run it.

It is yet another example of the GGF setting the standards to which others aspire and a major member benefit for the GGF community to take advantage to ensure their business is operating safely, looks after its staff and stands out from the crowd.


This new course is a major member benefit to the whole GGF community which is why it is available to them at a heavily discounted rate. We’re also delighted to give a discounted rate for the course to all FENSA Approved Installers and BFRC customers. We do want to make this important course available to the whole industry so it will be available to non-members but who will have to pay full price.

Full Price – £600 + VAT

FENSA/BFRC Customers – £550 + VAT

GGF Members – £500 + VAT
