Advanced Health & Safety Management Skills Training

Managing Risks to Protect People



The benefits of good health and safety management for any organisation are significant.

This DOLPHINS Advanced Health & Safety Management training course is based upon Successful Health and Safety Management produced experts. It will provide you with everything you need to develop and sustain a genuinely successful health and safety management system.

The Organisations must have health and safety management systems and practices that ensure risks are dealt with sensibly, responsibly, and proportionately. Effective health and safety management is not just about having a safety management system. The success of whatever system or process that is in place always depends on people’s attitudes and behaviours in the organisation (referred to as the “safety culture”).

Dame Judith Hackitt, former Chair of the UKs Health and Safety Executive, stated: There is a need for a sensible and proportionate approach to health and safety management, in short, a balanced approach this means ensuring that paperwork is proportionate, does not get in the way of doing the job. Health and safety are managed with the same degree of expertise and the same standards as other core business activities.
