Director Leadership and Involvement in Health and Safety

With so many unanswered questions no organisation, however outstanding, can afford not to review their corporate governance of health and safety. Directors need to be able to show that they have taken all reasonable steps to manage risks, and have effective health and safety management systems in place, including arrangements for involving their workforce.

In the decade it has taken to secure the introduction of the new offence of Corporate Manslaughter (CM), there has been a growing focus on the health and safety responsibilities of directors and senior managers in all organisations.

It is essential that as a board director or senior manager you have the strategic vision to view health and safety as:

  • A board level corporate performance issue
  • An important dimension of your Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy
  • An integral aspect of your corporate governance risk policy
  • A key parameter on which you report openly to your stakeholders and ensure involvement with your work force
  • An essential part of continuous improvement to achieve business success


Who is the course for?

Those with strategic responsibility for determining and implementing effective health and safety management within an organisation that has 250 or more employees.
