Health and Safety Champions often work independently and don’t get the opportunity to connect with other Health and Safety Champions to share knowledge or undertake specialised training. Some Transport and logistics companies have a dedicated Health & Safety Manager, but for smaller companies who may not have the same resources, their champion could be someone who is wearing many different hats, could even be the partner, wife or husband of an owner driver. The programme has been designed to empower leaders and workers to bring about behavioural change in the workplace, reduce and manage psychosocial harm.
