Process Safety Leadership and Culture

Topic Safety

CPD Hours 7

Overview

How can leaders influence a safety culture?

Establishing a safety culture begins at the top. It’s more than a box to be ticked. Senior leaders set the tone for their organisation and its process safety outcomes are a result of their engagement and focus.

This course is aimed at senior executives and board members, helping you to explore real issues and exercise due diligence in process safety.

Join other senior executives and board members to examine the real issues and decisions faced by boards and executive teams. You will explore how process safety management provides a fresh perspective, open up the human factors and cultural elements of the workplace, before identifying critical issues and helping you to consider a bespoke action plan.

This unique course combines facilitated discussions and interactive sessions which will enable participants to consider their access to information, their understanding of key issues and their ability to make cogent and timely decisions that respond to the concerns of the public, the regulator, staff, contractors and investors.

Why process safety leadership and culture is important

“Process safety is all about getting from A to B. It is up to leaders to decide where B is, and to inspire others to carry out the work that gets us there.”  Ken Rivers, chair of the COMAH Strategic Forum.

“Safety is as much people and culture as it is about technology.”  The Honourable Mr Justice Haddon-Cave.
