This two-day course is designed to develop an awareness and understanding of the obligations and potential liabilities that may be encountered by the OH&S professional when providing advice in the area of occupational health and safety. The focus is upon defining the types of obligations and potential liabilities and illustrating ways and means of reducing these risks.
As Occupational Health and Safety initiatives become more sophisticated and emphasize more of a managed systems approach, measurement and evaluation tools must also become more strategic in their intent, use and application.
This two-day course will be of value to all health and safety professionals responsible for the evaluation and on-going development of high quality safety initiatives. The course should also appeal to supervisors, labour representatives, consultants, technical experts and joint workplace safety and health committee members. This course highlights key measurement and evaluation techniques that can be used to support the development, implementation and maintenance of today's OHS intelligence based processes.
A two-day course that’s highly recommended for both internal and external occupational health and safety consultants. It will provide an understanding of, and practice in, the application of professional consulting skills in the context of OH&S practice.
