Health and Safety

All companies and organisations have legal responsibilities in relation to the health, safety and their employees. Unsafe acts can lead to time lost through injury, damage to assets and compensation payments. In the worst cases, Corporate Manslaughter legislation is a very real issue for Senior Leaders and Managers. Anything that reduces the frequency of incidents, saves the business money and promotes the health and well-being of staff. They must deal with the issues proactively to not only ensure compliance but embed a positive culture in their working practices.

 

Why our process works

We have great experience of delivering programmes to companies on health and safety across a range of industries. We design and deliver bespoke programmes which are relevant to your company and staff, and to your H&S objectives. Our skilled facilitators ensure involvement and discussions are linked to learning outcomes making the training effective. And the feedback mechanism ensures continuous improvement.

Our drama-based techniques, using professional actors and ‘live-action’ scenarios will:

  • Develop employee engagement.
  • Enable people to understand why accidents happen and how this relates to the systems and processes they operate.
  • Improve the quality of safety conversations at all levels.
  • Improve the skills, effectiveness and commitment of leaders.

 

We offer a range of bespoke programmes

Here is a range of Behaviour and Leadership topics we can offer to Directors, Managers, Supervisors and Operatives in both high and lower risk working environments. We create bespoke programmes specific to your needs.
