It is crucial for direct supervisors to fully comprehend their obligations regarding the well-being of employees. It is equally important for them to be able to translate these obligations into concrete action steps and communicate these actions in a clear and consistent manner. This way, all members of management contribute to an active prevention policy on well-being in the workplace.
What do you learn?
Basic knowledge about well-being in the workplace is extended and paired with a number of practical skills. Through this interactive training course with individual exercises and mutual alignment, participants will be able to translate their knowledge into a concrete plan of action.
The following topics are covered:
- Building a culture of well-being and dynamic risk management;
- Relevant legislation and obligations of relevant parties;
- Risk assessments, incident investigation and appropriate measures;
- Communication (deliberation, feedback, toolbox meetings and safety instruction cards);
- Individual and group exercises to translate the knowledge and skills gained during training into a concrete plan of action.
All topics are addressed from a practical point of view and ample time is dedicated to the day-to-day tasks of the prevention advisor.
The course is part of our open training programme and takes one day to complete. For groups of 6 participants or more, this course can be delivered in the form of in-house training.
Support by external prevention advisor is possible on request.
