Content: The first part of the event will provide an update about IOSH and its newly revised strategy. The second part will focus on the underlying principle of inherent safety - that is the elimination of hazards at the design stage rather than controlling them through additional layers of protection – is well established in the design of process plant and equipment. Analogously, the principle can arguably be broadly applied at the organisational level. That is embedding or designing safety into the organisational culture is preferable to addressing safety as an adjunct or afterthought. In this presentation we will examine the following elements that we believe are key to achieving this: 1) decision making based on competent health and safety advice; 2) those at the top of organisations being clear about their duties in relation to health and safety; 3) the education of tomorrow’s business leaders and professionals covering health and safety
Remarks: No attendance certificate will be issued to those who arrived after 7:15pm.
