Health & safety briefing for directors

A bite-sized session

This short session gives directors an overview of what is expected from them with regards to health and safety compliance and guidance on how to achieve it.

Learning objectives

By the end of the workshop directors will:

  • Understand the importance of strategic health and safety management and its interaction with other business systems
  • Understand the statutory duties and what the board and wider leadership team should be doing to ensure compliance
  • Appreciate the benefits of managing health and safety effectively
  • Appreciate the significance of performance monitoring for continual improvement of health and safety management
