Health and safety resources and ebooks

Whitepapers and eBooks: continuing professional development (CPD)

A big part of a health and safety professional’s role in any organisation is to ensure that the company is staying compliant with health and safety legislation and regulation.

There are different ways of tackling this, with the health and safety culture playing a big part in our organisations behave, and how their employees behave as well.

To help you understand different ideas put forward by leaders in the profession, as well as in-depth guides on the changing legislation and guidance for health and safety professionals, our selection of ebooks, whitepapers, and resources will help you stay compliant and give you ideas about how to influence and persuade your workforce.
