About the course

Safety Management must encompass both the hard and soft aspects of safety to produce an exceptional outcome. Health and Safety has to be managed with the same degree of expertise and to the same standards as other core business activities because of the high cost of failures; Legislation requiring employers to assess and manage risks; Public opinion on risk acceptability moving against poorly managed organizations which impose excessive risks and high profile disasters which fuel public opinion.
