This one-day interactive course has been designed for company Directors with the aim of recognising the human and financial implications of health and safety legislation non-compliance.
The course will provide a summary of how to promote a positive organisational culture for health and safety. Workshop exercises throughout the day will give delegates the opportunity to discuss their thoughts about health and safety and their responsibilities in an open forum.
The day concludes with delegates preparing an action plan for use when they return to the workplace. This will include a skills matrix to utilise within their organisations.
The DRHS course is endorsed by Build UK as the standard training for all senior managers and company directors.
This course has been developed for directors and senior managers of any organisational size in construction, civil engineering or allied trades, and therefore this should be considered before enrolling delegates on to this course.
