Lecture at the Johannes Kepler University (JKU), Linz/Austria
“An organization will never be able to achieve the highest standards of health and safety management without the active involvement of Top Management and First Front Line Leaders.
External stakeholders viewing the organization will observe the lack of direction.”
Leaders and Managers must ensure that Health and Safety is resourced adequately, risk assessments are performed, records and reports checked and all managers are responsible individuals, willing to promote and enforce Health and Safety practices.
You as future line managers provide a link between your workforce and Health and Safety practice in the workplace, it is essential that regular in-depth training is provided. Managers must have a clear understanding of, and actively promote, policies and procedures and be aware of their company’s legal duties. Line managers must be competent in performing risk assessments, implement effective control measures and capable of thorough incident investigation.
Training must include emergency procedures, first aid, accident reporting, good housekeeping skills and the avoidance of hazards.
Line Managers are increasingly required to take responsibility for actively managing the risks in their organization. Managing risks related to Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) should be high on every manager’s agenda. This course should help you to become familiar with basic leadership principles for effective HSE risk management.
This course is not a training program with all the details which you need in the future, but it should prepare you to get an overview and to understand why you need to start with HSE NOW.
