The Institute of Directors and the Business Leaders’ Health and Safety Forum is pleased to bring you a session focusing on what you can do to re-focus or build on the work underway to support the health, safety and wellbeing of your people, stakeholders and yourselves.

Executive Director Francois Barton will introduce the Forum’s new world-leading resource, the Protecting Mental Wellbeing Guide, which gives leaders and organisations the opportunity to consider what work-related mental harm is really happening in an organisation, and provides a solution to enable the work to be re-designed to protect people from those risks.

If you are a Business Leaders’ Health and Safety Forum member please contact the branch manager at to arrange a complimentary registration.
