This new one-day course is for CEOs who want to ensure they have a sound foundation on which to build their health and safety leadership.
It focuses on the CEO’s key obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA). It also explores how CEOs can leverage these obligations to create opportunities for better health and safety and improved business performance overall.
This is not a legal or technical session. It will provide CEOs with an overview of their legal duties, and will then explore what meeting those duties might look like in practice for a CEO.
That includes a facilitated discussion to identify key leadership mindsets and practices that can help CEOs. Attendees will get practical advice on how to ‘step into your organisation’, understand how work is done, and the CEO’s role in facilitating improvements.
This course is highly recommended for CEOs still getting to grips with the HSWA’s implications for their role, or those new to the CEO role. It is also an excellent refresher for more seasoned CEOs wanting assurance that their health and safety leadership remains on track.
The course includes four modules, covering key areas of HSWA:
This course is a new offering as part of the Forum’s Executive Leadership Programme. It will be delivered by Dr Philip Voss of Leading Safety, who co-delivers the Executive Leadership Programme.
Attending the Obligation Creates Opportunity course is highly recommended for anyone wanting to go on and complete the Programme’s more intensive 2-day CEO course.
In addition to offering one-day Obligation Creates Opportunity courses in Auckland, the Forum is also running regional workshops that will cover one module of the course at a time. The first workshops covering the Due Diligence module ran in the regions in March 2019. Regional workshops on the Mental Health and Wellness module are running in September 2019.
The Obligation Creates Opportunity course is free for Forum CEOs. There is an opportunity for Forum members to also run the course with their leadership teams or boards. For information about costs and availability of this option please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
