It will enable those operating at policy and strategic levels within your business to reduce risk and liability.
Who Should Attend?
This course is ideal for business owners, board members, chief executive officers, directors, partners, senior managers and HR professionals.
Why’s It Important?
Under the Corporate Manslaughter Act 2007, if you fail to meet your responsibilities for health and safety it could result in your imprisonment. As a responsible person, safety falls within your remit. The law will hold you personally accountable for any health and safety failings.
It is also important that individuals across your organisation see the management team adopting and embracing health and safety practices. This will result in an effective health and safety culture within your business. Without your employees’ commitment and support any safety measures you put in place will most likely be ineffective.
The introduction of an effective health and safety management system together with implementing successful best practices can improve business productivity. This will then be reflected in your bottom line.
What Will You Gain?
By attending the course, you or your employees will gain an understanding of the importance of integrating health and safety objectives with your overall business goals.
In addition, you will know how to incorporate health and safety during planning and decision making.
On returning to the workplace, you or your employees will understand individual’s roles and responsibilities and will be able to effectively manage a health and safety management system within your business.
