CASE STUDY

Safety Governance Case Study


FEFO Consulting was contacted by the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) to provide guidance to directors and officers on effective safety governance.

Challenge

Balancing Safety Legal Compliance with Effective Leadership

Changes to National Heavy Vehicle Laws (NHVL) and Chain of Responsibility (CoR) requirements led to many industry stakeholders confused. In parallel, several high profile Workplace Health & Safety (WHS) prosecutions and jail sentences of directors raised safety governance concerns with boards and directors.

Solution

Safety Governance Webinar

FEFO Consulting facilitated a simple webinar to cover:

• Legal obligations including WHS, the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) and the new Chain of Responsibility (CoR) changes
• Safety Due Diligence Framework and six keys to effective safety leadership
• Simple recommendations on how to demonstrate WHS/ CoR due diligence
• Cultural and organisational blocks to achieving sustainable change.

Outcome

Safety Governance Framework

Six simple steps to assist leaders not only demonstrate legal due diligence, but also demonstrate desired safety leadership behaviours and effective outcomes.
