This course follows a 1 day programme which has been designed to brief directors and corporate policy makers on the essential health and safety issues that affect organisations of all shapes and sizes today. The course objective is to enable those in senior leadership roles such as executives and directors to contribute to the review of policy, strategies, and where necessary, introduce changes to make their organisation operate more safely.

- DO – Implementing Health and Safety measures and communication
- CHECK – Monitoring Health and Safety Performance

This course is designed for those that are typically employed in a director or senior executive role.
