CDM 2015 – What Good Looks Like – Strategic Considerations for Directors


This programme, aimed at Directors, has run for multiple years alongside its sister programme for Managers.

This Directors course, with the ability to be tailored according to the specific division of a business, for example construction or facilities management, seeks to enhance the understanding of the strategic contribution that Directors are expected to make today and gives Directors an enhanced understanding of the legal H&S framework applicable to the construction industry. By reflecting upon the current assessment of risk and planning to combat those risks, delegates focus on identifying how to reduce the risk that their approach will be found wanting both personally and corporately.
