Consultation by the Institute of Directors: New guidance on directors’ responsibilities for health and safety

This consultation has now closed.

Directors and boards have a vital role in the achieving of high standards of workplace health and safety by their organisation.  But what is that directors and boards are expected to do in overseeing their organisation’s health and safety performance?

At the request of the Health and Safety Commission (HSC), the Institute of Directors (IoD) is leading a steering group consisting of key stakeholders to oversee the production of new, authoritative guidance setting out what is expected of directors. IoD is conducting the consultation on the draft version of the guidance and is keen to hear your views; the consultation runs for a 6 week period until approximately 22 June.

The HSC urges you to take this opportunity to participate in the consultation.
