Unlocking Women's Potential to Lead Safely

Industry & Regulatory News, Health, Safety, Security & Environment, United Kingdom, Workplace

In a bid to support what they consider to be an underrepresented group in Health & Safety, RoSPA and L’Oréal have partnered for the launch of a dedicated Leading Safely for Women training programme.

 

 

Part of a broader [email protected]@Home collaboration, the training will develop the abilities of women in Health & Safety with an entrepreneurial spirit; enhancing their visibility in the sector is at the heart of the collaboration between the two organisations.

 

This series of one-day courses aim to identify women from across the globe and inspire them to realise their full potential. The inspiring content will help delegates understand where they are now, where they aspire to be and how to develop a Health & Safety strategy which aligns with business values, along with how to reach and indeed exceed personal and business objectives.

 

Following the course, attendees will be supported by a mentor, and encouraged to be visible to help all women thrive and feel confident in choosing Health & Safety as a career. The courses are fully funded by the [email protected]@Home partnership; attendees commit to a day of training, joining the mentoring program and writing about their journey.

 

Louise Hosking, director of Hosking Associates, will be hosting the training. She says: "I could not be more excited to be involved and part of this wonderful initiative with such prestigious partners, for a cause which is very close to my heart. It’s an honour to be involved. There are countless women in Health & Safety positions around the world who have the potential to shine bright in leadership positions and this is our purpose", recollecting her experience of the inaugural training in February,

 

Lauren Crawley, a Health, Safety & Biosafety Advisor, says: "I felt that the course would give me more visibility and confidence to show what I could do, so that I might be able to progress. It more than exceeded my expectations and there was so much to take away it was hard to get it down to just three things to go back and implement. I think a lot of my commitments were about trying to get more visibility, and to promote the good work that we (as a profession/team) and I (as an individual) do."

 

Dr Karen McDonnell, RoSPA’s occupational Safety & Health policy adviser, adds: "Partnership working is at the very heart of what we do at RoSPA. By bringing our delegates and their mentors together we want to increase the ripple effect that this excellent programme will bring - each conversation and each exchange of ideas will promote life-enhancing skills and knowledge that will ultimately reduce serious accidental injuries across the world."

 

Additionally, Malcolm Staves, L’Oréal’s Global Vice President Health & Safety, confirms that the partnership with RoSPA has been a gamechanger both for its [email protected]@Home initiative and the recent launch of this Leading Safely for Women programme. He says: "We are very proud of what we are starting to achieve with RoSPA, with the support of Hosking Associates, with this pioneering training. The first training was a great success and the attendees have now entered into an exciting coaching/mentoring phase. Diversity and inclusion are part of our DNA in L’Oréal and we are convinced that better diversity will result in better decision making which, in the Health & Safety profession, will mean we could save more lives and reduce injuries. It just makes sense."
