Course overview

It is often the case that HR pick up some of the responsibility for health and safety within a business.

In many businesses there simply aren’t the resources to have specialist teams for matters like H&S. Even in organisations with H&S support, HR are often required to take responsibility for a wide range of H&S matters from an employee relations perspective. But, without knowledge and training, how can HR and other non-specialist H&S people ensure they minimise the risks to themselves, the employees and the organisation?

This course has been designed to give the HR professional the essential information they need to understand what is required of them. It will provide practical guidance on what their organisation needs in place, and give them the knowledge and confidence to handle H&S scenarios.

Benefits of attending

  • Understand the implications of the health & safety responsibility from an HR perspective
  • Navigate health & safety management from a practical viewpoint
  • Identify some common risk areas in your business
  • Get to grips with common scenarios and what they mean for your business
  • Learn about the process of investigating and managing incidents when they occur

The speaker, an HR specialist, providing companies with training and support particularly in areas linked to safety investigations, will use case studies and real-world examples to help bring the subject to life, ensuring delegates gain a full understanding of this important area.

Who should attend?

This webinar has been specifically designed for all HR professionals with health and safety responsibilities.

The topics included will also be of relevance to others that have H&S responsibilities within their business.
