Modern Safety Management

Modern Safety Management


This intensive workshop is intended for leaders and managers at all levels within the organization.
The workshop introduces the attendees to the philosophy that Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) is not solely the responsibility of the employees
or the safety department. The workshop will explain the management function and management principles that apply to safety management. It will
cover past practices in OHS and introduce contemporary concepts now being practiced world-wide to protect workers in the workplace.
The workshop explains modern terms used in OHS and will introduce proactive goal setting and measurement for safety performance. It examines
in depth the management control function (IISSMECC) as well as the ISO 45001 recommended implementation strategy of Plan, Do, Correct, Act
(PDCA) for implementing and auditing a Safety Management System (SMS).

A number of elements of a SMS are discussed and the benefit of these to the reduction of risk is explained. The workshop will equip young leaders
and managers to recognize risk and how to mitigate them by introducing aspects of the SMS.
Extensive use is made of visual aids during this workshop and handouts include numerous examples of SMS control documents, reporting systems,
forms, booklets, example standards and policies, etc.
