Safety Culture Change

Great safety performance needs a forward thinking learning culture.  It is sustained by leaders at all levels paying active and positive attention to all aspects of health and safety.  Going beyond conventional behaviour-based safety, Hastam can help you implement and sustain positive change.

Compliance with all relevant health and safety legislation is essential. The penalties for not doing so can be severe and may now exceed the cost of compliance.

I would recommend this course 100%. The course was thoroughly enjoyable and very informative. I particularly found the training on techniques in coaching and facial patterns useful, there was nothing taught which I did not feel would have a positive impact going forwards.
