CITB Directors Role for Health and Safety


This one-day interactive course has been designed for company directors and senior managers, with the aim of recognising the human and financial implications of non-compliance of health and safety legislation.

The course will provide a summary of how to promote a positive organisational culture for health and safety. Workshop exercises throughout the day will give delegates the opportunity to discuss their thoughts about health and safety and their responsibilities in an open forum.
