The guidance in this leaflet sets out an agenda for the effective leadership of health and safety.

It is for use by all directors, governors, trustees, officers and their equivalents in the private, public and third sector. It applies to organisations of all sizes.

This leaflet has been updated to reflect the move from 'Plan, Deliver, Monitor and Review', to 'Plan, Do, Check and Act'. This change has been made to be consistent with HSE's wider approach to health and safety management. The overall guidance remains broadly the same.

Other improvements have been made to the format of the checklist, and the design amended to improve accessibility. The publication has also been reduced from A4 to A5 size.
