Course Description

IOSH Safety for Senior ExecutivesThis pragmatic and practical one day course provides Executives with a clear insight into the key aspects of health and safety in the workplace and a full appreciation of current health and safety legislation. This course replaces the IOSH Safety for Senior Executives and IOSH Directing Safely courses as of August 2016.

Why you should attend this course

On the 8th of April 2016 a Director of a demolition company was jailed for six years when two of his employees fell from a roof on the same day. He was fined £400,000 and ordered to pay £55,000 in court costs. Senior Executives and Managers have onerous responsibilities under health and safety legislation. Individuals who neglect their responsibility for health and safety may be open to criminal prosecution in the event of a serious accident or incident occurring in the workplace. All levels of management should be fully aware of how this can affect them.

Who should attend?

Those with overall operational or strategic accountability for an organisation; those responsible for determining and implementing safety and health management and monitoring its success.
