Health and Safety: Your responsibilities

Recent changes have led to the need for those with key health and safety responsibilities to refresh their understanding of the requirements imposed on them through legislation to avoid the accidents and ill-health that could potentially be caused due to their work activities.

It is vital for businesses to appreciate the costs of failing to manage these risks and to understand how they can promote and manage health and safety effectively.

The course includes:

  • an update on health and safety legislation and liability
  • key duties and responsibilities
  • management systems and practices
  • effective leadership and engagement
  • health and safety performance
  • case studies
