This course will support leaders to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours to become better Health and Safety communicators. They will learn how to develop their teams and create a positive Health and Safety environment.
The best Health and Safety plans and systems can fail due to poor or non-existent communication, either a total lack of it, or miscommunication.
Effective communication needs to be given just as much time and attention as the actual plan itself.
Lack of communication can impede a good Health and Safety culture being created in your workplace. It can also create a dangerous, non compliant and disengaged approach to Health and Safety.
Why Communication Is Vital
Effective communication is crucial to achieving an injury-free workplace.
Most injuries can be attributed to people not following procedure and not communicating health and safety concerns.
Employees are often reluctant to provide feedback to leaders or to bring up concerns with colleagues.
Being able to provide and receive health and safety feedback more effectively will change in a way that will make your health and safety goals more achievable.To be eligible to enrol in this programme you must meet the following entry criteria.
