Protecting the Health & Safety of employees and others who may be affected by your organisation’s activities is an essential part of risk management, and must be led by the board. Failures to include Health & Safety as a key business risk in board decisions can have catastrophic results – many high profile cases over the years have been rooted in failures of leadership.
This course sets out the argument for integrating Health & Safety into the business agenda, and the importance of creating and nurturing a strong safety culture. It will increase your awareness around the core aspects of the Health & Safety at Work, etc. Act 1974 and explain the possible consequences – for Directors personally as well as the organisation itself – when things go wrong.
If you are a Director who’s unsure about their responsibilities, what and when they should delegate, and how to plan and deliver Health & Safety effectively – then this course will prove extremely helpful. You’ll also find out about the role of auditing, how to effectively communicate and consult with your staff on safety issues, and what to consider when procuring the services of external parties like contractors.
This popular course is designed for Directors and senior officers in any organisation who are looking for an insight into their responsibilities and how to fulfil them.
