Health and Safety from a Governance Perspective

Good Governance and Leadership

The Health and Safety at Work Act places a positive duty on ‘officers’ to actively engage in health and safety matters. Officers includes directors, partners, and chief executives.

With the recent Covid-19 pandemic Health and Safety has become an even more relevant issue.

Officers must exercise due diligence to ensure the organisation meets its duty to ensure the health and safety of workers and others by - 

  • Focusing on work health and safety matters and the importance of keeping up to date

  • Understanding the operations of your organisation and the hazards and risks generally associated with those operations

  • Ensuring the organisation is appropriately resourced to eliminate or minimise risk

  • Ensuring the organisation has appropriate processes for receiving information about incidents, hazards and risks

  • Ensuring there are processes for complying with any duty and verifying that these processes are in place and being used

This seminar will look at 4 key criteria for safety leadership and 5 stages of safety governance.
