**IOSH Leading Safely

About

As a senior executive, your time is precious. IOSH has designed this 1/2 day Leading Safely course in conjunction with business leaders to include exactly what you should know as a Director, CEO or Senior Manager, in as short a time as possible.

Whatever the size of your organisation, the course will show you how investing in safety and health can reap valuable business benefits, including how to enhance management arrangements, encouraging positive worker engagement, and identifying clear, unambiguous responsibilities which can all lead to improved staff retention, better productivity, an enhanced reputation and stronger brand.

Hosking Associates has successfully guided senior managers and business owners from a number of large, medium and small organisations through the IOSH Leading Safely course with great success. Everyone attending has commented it has made them consider their own perceptions of what leading safely and changing culture really means. Everyone has gone away understanding what the key questions are they should ask to properly appraise how well their organisation is doing in practice and what their personal and company liabilities are.
