‘Truly effective health and safety management require competency across every facet of an organisation and through every level of the workforce.’ – (Managing for Health and Safety – HSG65)

The health and safety performance and legal compliance of an organisation is usually demonstrated by the level of commitment of its management team. In fact, managers are often criticised for failing to take their policy duties and legal responsibilities seriously. But what is often forgotten is that managers simply don’t have the underpinning knowledge and understanding of what is required to manage safety in their area of responsibility. This is why training is crucial to any organisation’s health and safety management success.
