    Sir Clive Woodward to speak about leadership

    By Jonathan Brown on February 2, 2016

    Sir Clive Woodward to speak about leadership

    A World Cup winning rugby coach is to talk about how good leadership can prevent accidents at work.

    Sir Clive Woodward, who guided England to glory at the tournament in Australia back in 2003, has been chosen as the keynote speaker for the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health’s (IOSH) third and final international conference on the subject of leadership.

    The aim is to help businesses thrive through better management from the top to the bottom, listening to the needs of employees.

    Health and safety

    Sir Clive is renowned for his leadership skills, having previously written a book focusing on successful leadership.

    Away from the rugby pitch and the glare of the media, he is also a successful businessman.

    Leadership is a vital part in any organisation, says the 60-year-old. It is through good leadership that organisations can thrive.

    It is also key to make sure health and safety management systems are put into place to ensure employees are protected in the workplace.

    IOSH 2016 will be taking place at ExCeL London on 21 and 22 June, with Sir Clive opening the second day of the conference.

    Preventing accidents at work

    With leadership comes responsibility. Employers have a duty of care to look after the health and safety of their workers at all times.

    One of the basic and fundamental legal requirements for employers is to conduct a risk assessment for the working environment.

    A risk assessment helps employers recognise where there may be issues that could potentially lead to an accident at work.

    Once the hazards have been identified, the employer is able to take the necessary steps to minimise the risk to workers, known as risk management.

    Training can help better identify risks and manage them so they do not pose as much of a concern to the workforce.
