Safety Management

Safety Management course provides the fundamental knowledge required for the development and implementation of an effective health & safety program.

Participants can customize existing forms and layouts to complete their Company Safety Manual to suit their workplaces.

Learn fundamental concepts and processes for implementing the right safety management system at your organization.

Strategic Axis Certificate in Safety Management coursework spans a wide variety of topics — ranging from leadership skills and ethics; to developing budgets and controlling workers’ compensation costs; to designing and adjusting safety systems and programs, so they meet the needs of employees and businesses.

Apply the requirements of the new international standard ISO 45001 to improve health & safety.

Safety Management has come under considerable scrutiny in the light of recent disasters. However, the concept of Safety Management Systems is usually limited to the systematic approach and not to the holistic (all aspect) approach.

Safety Management must encompass both the hard and soft aspects of safety to produce an exceptional outcome.

Health and Safety has to be managed with the same degree of expertise and to the same standards as other core business activities because of the high cost of failures;

Legislation requiring employers to assess and manage risks; Public opinion on risk acceptability moving against poorly managed organizations which impose excessive risks and high profile disasters which fuel public opinion.
