Directors’ and Senior Management Responsibilities for Managing Safety
Half Day Course – Maximum of 18 delegates
As you may be aware the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 came into force in April 2008.
You may have seen the recent headlines:
“First company charged under Corporate Manslaughter Act”
“Company director faces gross negligence manslaughter charge”
Despite this many UK businesses remain ignorant of the implications of the Act and remain vulnerable to very serious criminal charges and continue to put employees’ lives at risk, according to research from the British Safety Council.
This course aims to provide directors and senior management with a clear understanding of the moral, business and legal case for the proactive management of health and safety.
Who is this course for?
The course is intended for directors, senior management and persons with strategic responsibility for determining and implementing health and safety management.
What is it about?
The course will reflect the guidelines in the Institute of Directors/Health and Safety Commission’s ‘Leading health and safety at work’ (INDG417).
The requirements of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 will be covered, together with other relevant legislation. The importance of integrating health and safety management into other business management systems will be explored together with the importance of behavioural based safety.
On completion of the course, delegates should be able to:
• understand the health and safety role and responsibilities of directors and senior management
• appreciate the consequences of the failure to effectively manage health and safety
• understand the importance of the integration of health and safety management into the business decision making process
• appreciate the importance of the health and safety policy in planning, developing and implementing health and safety management
• appreciate the importance of continual improvement through effective monitoring and review.
The course is intended to be highly interactive and participants will be encouraged to engage in discussion throughout.
