The importance of a positive health and safety culture

The importance of a positive health and safety culture

Do the Senior Management in your organisation understand their personal liability?

The number of company directors and managers prosecuted by the HSE in the year to 31 March 2016 more than trebled from 15 to 46 persons. Of these 46 prosecutions 34 were found guilty and 12 were given prison sentences, the longest of which was 2 years.

Are your Senior Executives, Directors or CEO fully aware of your company’s personal and corporate health and safety responsibilities?

Pivotal can help staff who have overall operational or strategic accountability reach the required level of understanding.

Our IOSH Safety for Executives and Directors course covers:

  • Key aspects of Health and Safety in the workplace and a full appreciation of current health and safety legislation (including the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 and the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007).
  • The legal, moral and financial role of operational directors, owners of small businesses and senior executives.
  • How to plan and integrate Health and Safety into business systems.
  • The importance of attitude towards improving an organisation’s safety culture.
