Four Seasons Health Care, one of the UK’s leading independent healthcare companies, continues to show its commitment to developing health and safety. In 2006 the company appointed Brenda Pendlebury as Health and Safety Manager.
Since then a three phase programme of health and safety training has been organised and its implementation is already in progress.
· Last November, key senior directors and managers attended a health and safety/employment law update seminar presented by leading law firm Radcliffe le Brassier.
· In late February and early March, four workshops were attended by senior members of the Operations team (including MD’s, Regional Managers, Training, Estates and Care Services personnel).
· From May onwards, the third phase of health and safety training will commence, with Four Seasons Home, Hospital and Unit Managers attending two day training events.
All of these courses under the second and third phase of the programme have been created and developed for Four Seasons Health Care and are bespoke to the organisation.
“The aim of these events is continuous improvement, building on best practice and providing senior managers with an understanding of the moral, legal and business case for proactive health and safety management and to give guidance on effective risk management” comments Brenda Pendlebury, Four Seasons Health & Safety Manager.
