Health & Safety Management for the Modern Business


Has your company grown past 5 employees and now needs to implement Health & Safety measures? Directors and Senior Managers may not fully understand their personal, moral and corporate responsibilities. This is a certificated course that covers high level responsibilities, as well as the basic foundations of a good overall management system, with a clear understanding of the requirements of health and safety law as it applies to their business and how it should be implemented. Effective Safety, Health and Environmental (SHE) Management can only be achieved when the people who steer an organisation are prepared to make it an integral component of achieving success.  Best business practice and HSE guidance encourages senior managers to be trained in these areas.
