Royal Mail praise Cardinus for their Safety Leadership Course

Cardinus new Safety Leadership Training Course is unprecedented success according to the Royal Mail

    COVENTRY, ENGLAND, September 25, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Cardinus, (a THB Group plc member company) - providers of online injury reduction solutions and risk management within the safety, fleet, insurance and property sectors, last week launched their new Safety Leadership Training Course, entitled 'Leadership for Health and Safety Practitioners' at the Royal Mail Headquarters in Rugby. The new course has subsequently been endorsed by the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM) and has been developed in association with the Royal Mail Group.

The four-day in-house course devised by Barry Holt, Head of Health & Safety Consultancy at Cardinus and Keith Scott, Group Head of Safety at Royal Mail Group, covered all aspects of effective safety leadership through topics such as communication, influencing management, change management and business continuity planning. The course is very much focused on health and safety leadership and its importance within the workplace.

Cardinus' Head of Health & Safety Consultancy, Barry Holt commented, "If we are to succeed in integrating health and safety in to the way an organization functions, it is essential that the safety professional understands what drives the business. Only then can they effectively influence the senior management. Following this course, delegates all felt they had gained understanding and skills which would equip them to achieve this."

Learning points include understanding how health and safety relates to business drivers, what it takes to establish a strong safety culture and understanding why strong safety performance should be a core business value.

Keith Scott, Group Head of Safety at Royal Mail added:
"Leadership is required at all levels within an organization and never more so than by safety professionals. Safety professionals practising at the higher levels in larger organizations need more than just health and safety qualifications and practical safety skills. They need the management skills that will enable them to become safety leaders in their own right and influence chief executives and senior managers. This course will help experienced safety practitioners identify the areas for personal development and where they need to refresh their 'soft' management skills to improve their safety leadership delivery.
The next Safety Leadership Course is planned for the end of November, to book your place please email [email protected]. Cardinus is offering IIRSM members a 10% discount if they decide to join the course which costs GBP995 plus VAT.
