Analisi fabbisogno formativo

The qualification focuses on how leadership behaviours can impact on the health and safety culture of an organisation and it guides leaders to become better advocates for health and safety within their respective organisations.

The cost to the economy of injuries and ill-health is enormous – a cost that is often hidden, but is estimated to be in the order of billions of pounds annually in the UK alone.

Therefore, having leaders in your organisation who inspire others to drive health and safety throughout a business not only protects workers but also contributes towards profitability and compliance.
