Director and Senior Manager Safety

Because the buck stops with you.

The introduction of the Corporate Manslaughter Act in 2007 means that failure to meet your director's responsibilities for health and safety could now result in imprisonment. As a director, safety falls within your remit, and the law will therefore hold you accountable for any failings.

Our one-day course teaches you everything you need to know about health and safety for directors and Senior Managers.
