This one-day interactive course has been designed for company directors and senior managers active in a health and safety strategic role in the built environment with the aim of recognising directors’ duties of care and the implications of non-compliance with health and safety legislation.

Overview

The course will provide a summary of how to promote a positive organisational culture for health and safety. Group 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 course aims to help directors to:

  • recognise the moral, economic and legal costs/implications of decisions made in the boardroom that may make their business liable
  • understand the significance of strategic management of risks
  • appreciate the range of consequences from failing to manage health and safety effectively
  • understand the importance of competent duty holders, and the significance of their cooperation, communication and coordination of health and safety on projects
  • recognise the need to appoint competent health and safety assistance, and the limitations of such an appointment, and
  • identify the basic tools to introduce a proactive health and safety culture into an organisation, and the benefits of this approach.

Certification for this course is valid for 5 years. To remain certified in this area, you will need to retake the course before the expiry date.
