Keeping Health and Safety Out of the Too Hard Basket
There are many good reasons why businesses choose to put health and safety management in place, such as legal obligations, customer or tender requirements, to promote health and wellbeing or following a workplace incident and regulatory action. For some businesses, these become part of everyday business management whilst for others health and safety is complex and challenging and can be put in the too hard basket. This can have short and long term implications on a business.
In her presentation, Jo Kitney will provide an update on work health and safety legislation and the implications of recent court cases on organisations and individuals duties and obligations. Jo will talk about quality, health, safety and environmental management, the characteristics seen in high performing organisations and key steps a business can take to ensure effective management.
The presentation will close with an overview of the services provided by Kitney and their new e-commerce site (launching July 2017), which will make easy to use health, safety, quality and environmental business resources available and affordable for start-up, small and medium sized businesses.
