Supervisor Responsibilities and Due Diligence (1/2 day)

Supervisor Responsibilities and Due Diligence (1/2 day)

UPDATED & IMPROVED! Understand your legal duties to protect the health and safety of workers, your role as a leader and what it means to be duly diligent.  

Item #:  20114
 

Description

Supervisors play a critical role in health and safety and so much more. Good supervisors help improve productivity, protect employees and reduce risk. They also motivate their teams and create a positive workplace culture - all of which boost profit margins and shareholder returns. In short, a well-trained supervisor is one of the best assets a company has.

With fines for individuals recently quadrupling to $100,000 (up from $25,000), it has never been a better time for supervisors to understand the critical role they play in protecting worker health and safety and the steps they need to take to demonstrate that they've been duly diligent.

This half-day, instructor-led course equips supervisors with the necessary knowledge to understand their legal duties, their role as a leader and the concept of due diligence. Supervisors are provided with the knowledge and tools they need to be proactive in protecting worker health and safety and taking the necessary steps to demonstrate due diligence.
