Directors Role for Health and Safety


This one-day interactive programme has been designed for company Directors with the aim of recognising the human and financial implications of health and safety legislation non-compliance. The programme will provide a summary of how to promote a positive organisational culture for health and safety. Workshop exercises throughout the day will give delegates the opportunity to discuss their thoughts about health and safety and their responsibilities in an open forum. The day concludes with delegates preparing an action plan for use when they return to the workplace. This will include a checklist to utilise within their organisations that will help to ensure compliance with legislation.

  • Recognise the moral, economic and legal costs/implications of decisions made in the boardroom that make their business liable.

  • Appreciate the consequences of failing to manage health & safety effectively.
