Confused about your responsibilities? Don’t be.
This Masterclass will deal with the essential Health & Safety requirements for all types and scales of business organisations and workplaces from large corporates to SME’s to solopreneurs and freelancers.
The protection of employees, customers, guests and visitors of any organisation is, without doubt, a very serious matter. In our ever changing world, the need to maintain this protection and understand the legislation around it is important. With changing requirements and regulations surrounding Health & Safety at work, this Masterclass will give you an overview of workplace Health & Safety legislation including the components required for the successful management of its delivery, including managing risk and the principles of prevention.
Andrea Dodds of SHEQ Management Systems will cover:
- An introduction to key legislation including legal duties
- Key components in effective Health & Safety management
- Risk Assessments
- When things go wrong
- “Hot Topics”
Health & Safety laws apply to all workplaces. Health & Safety legislation applies to employers, employees, self-employed, and persons concerned with premises. The various and wide-ranging laws exist to protect you, your workers, visitors, contractors and members of the public from harm. Can you imagine spending the rest of your life in excruciating pain following a work-related accident/injury? Now spare a thought for the family members tasked with looking after you... Nobody ever sets off for work expecting to be killed or seriously injured at work.
- Participate in sessions on security, safety, personal resilience and wellbeing
- Hear from an expert speaker on a range of Health & Safety issues
- Exchange of best practice
The benefits of effective Health & Safety leadership and management within an organisation can include a reduction in absence/sickness rates, improved staff morale, lower AFR (increases your chances of successful tender bids), reduced insurance premiums, improved efficiency and productivity, and shared ownership of Health & Safety responsibilities.
