Managing business risks - how to avoid the icebergs
"I cannot imagine any condition which would cause a ship to founder. I cannot conceive of any vital disaster happening to this vessel. Modern shipbuilding has gone beyond that".
Edward Smith, captain of the Titanic
"I could have closed down bits of British Home Stores to make more money but it's not my style. I want to make my money as a retailer, not by putting people out of work".
Sir Philip Green, former owner of BHS
"Hindsight is 20/20 vision" and "history repeats itself" are well-known mantras but they do not stop business leaders, boards and managers making decisions which prove to be disastrous for the business.
In this thought provoking, interactive and practically-based half-day workshop, Andy Farrall explores how company directors and senior managers can take a proactive rather than reactive approach to critical management systems such as health & safety and avoid some common “management icebergs” that can otherwise result in commercial disaster.
Who should attend?
Company directors (executive and non-executive) and senior managers
What to expect?
We’ll compare a tragedy from 104 years ago (the loss of the Titanic) with modern examples of lives being put at risk (and lost) by poor management practice. Have lessons been learned, or are the same mistakes being repeated?
We’ll also look at the new penalties now in force for poor health & safety management. Are these punishments sufficient incentive for managers to do their job?
And finally we’ll look at some examples of how effective planning can minimise the effects of sudden crises
Participation on this course will provide you with the knowledge to:
Identify Management Icebergs
Overcome the dangers of complacency
Deal with flawed safety management systems
Understand the impact of the 2015 Sentencing Guidelines
Devise and implement Iceberg Management Strategies
