Service Description

Papua New Guinea has unacceptably high rates of workplace fatalities, serious harm injuries and work-related disease and illness. As such, directors must have knowledge of, and commitment to, health and safety. The principles underpinning health and safety governance are no different than any other aspect of a governance role. Good health and safety governance is about having a demonstrable plan and a pro-active approach to making the workplace as safe as it can be. Directorship in health and safety is not about responsibility for the day-to-day granular operations of the entity. It is about ensuring appropriate systems and processes are in place to support health and safety, and critically, that there is proper resourcing and verification of health and safety at the board table. The IDAPNG is committed to raising awareness of the importance of health and safety in businesses and educating directors about their roles and responsibilities. This seminar aims to provide directors with practical guidance and thought leadership in health and safety governance.
