Leading Health and Safety Committee Training for a Collaborative Safety Team.

The Health and safety Committee can be an effective medium for understanding, managing and communicating safety through your workplace. Get your stakeholders working effectively together on managing safety can be challenging with a range of obstacles contributing to poor safety culture and performance. Is safety performance at risk in your workplace with –

  • Stakeholders not knowing their responsibilities in the work health and safety framework;
  • Stakeholders not understanding how to work together effectively to improve processes and prioritise activities;
  • Stakeholders not effectively understanding the risk management principles;
  • Stakeholders not recognising and respecting the varying priorities of the business.
