An enjoyable and informative course with high quality learning material, I also enjoyed the style of being able to carry the study and assessment around my busy work commitments.

by Darren Crannis on IOSH Safety For Executives and Directors

I cetainly recommend this course for small business Directors or senior management teams responsible for Health and Safety and have responsibility of advising the organisation on H&S matters.

Protecting the health and safety of employees or members of the public who may be affected by your company’s activities is an essential part of risk management and must be led by the Senior Executives and Directors.

This course delivers the importance of taking this responsibility for your heath and safety, and that of your workforce, and how you can implement a personal plan of action to help your organisation find the best ways to lead and promote health and safety, and therefore meet its legal obligations.
