NEW: Obligation Creates Opportunity

  • Understand what the Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA) means for CEO leadership of health and safety
  • Leverage these obligations to create new leadership opportunities

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 HSWA while exploring how CEOs can leverage these obligations to create opportunities for better health and safety and improved business performance overall.

It is not a legal or technical session.

Instead it will provide CEOs with an overview of their legal duties, and will then explore what meeting those duties might look like in practice.  Facilitated discussion will help you to identify key leadership mindsets and practices and offer practical advice on how to ‘step into your organisation’, understand how work is done and the CEO’s role in making improvements happen.

The course covers four modules, key areas of the HSWA:

  • Due diligence
  • Mental health and wellbeing
  • Supply chain relationships (overlapping PCBUS)
  • Critical risk.

Who is this for? Highly recommended for CEOs still getting to grips with the HSWA's implications for their role, or those new to the CEO role. An excellent refresher for more seasoned CEOs wanting assurance that their health and safety leadership remains on track. We strongly recommend members complete this course, or at least two modules before enrolling in the Executive Leadership programme.

Cost? Included in your Forum membership fee, unless run in-house.

When? This course is run both as full-day sessions in Auckland covering all four modules at once, or via the Forum’s regional workshops covering one module of the course at a time (two-hour sessions). There is also an opportunity for Forum members to run the course in-house with their leadership teams or board.
