Heath & Safety Staff Development

A strong and respected cadre of Health & Safety professional staff is essential to the success of any organization with a robust Health & Safety value.   Every organization needs a blend of Health & Safety talent that is technically competent and organizationally savvy.  Of paramount importance, especially in the Health & Safety field, is an individual’s ability to become an organizational team member not just technical expert.

H&S professionals all levels need to be perceived by Line management as legitimate business partners.  Even if the H&S function is not positioned as a direct report to the Sr. Line Manager of the organization, their comportment, organizational savvy and business understanding can allow them to create the requisite respect from the senior management team.  OpX Safety can help you enhance the capacity of your H&S staff.
