Whether a companies safety standards are good, bad or indifferent is heavily influenced by the effectiveness of the management of the company.
Senior Executives and Directors have the authority and influence to either improve or cause a decline in the standards of health and safety and the number and severity of accidents happening to their employees and others.
This course is designed to advise Senior Executives and Directors of their legal and moral duties to invest in health and safety and to influence others to invest in health and safety.
The course also aims to show Senior Executives and Directors that failure to invest in health and safety and failure to manage health and safety could have serious economic affects to their company and possibly to themselves.
The course aims to give Senior Executives and Directors the skills and tools to examine their safety management systems and on the completion of the course encourages them to set a programme to aid the development of or in some cases start to implement health and safety management into the board room, causing it to actively influence decisions made in the development of company strategies.
This course is an externally certificated course and is accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
