CEOs, presidents, and other senior leaders bear accountability for the actions taken in their organizations. Those accountabilities will be different for each leader, and how each leader meets those accountabilities will also be unique. This is as true for health and safety as it is for revenue, profit, growth, and quality.
On the second day of the 2009 National Leaders Forum on Health and Safety, held jointly by The Conference Board of Canada and the MySafeWork initiative, 40 business leaders and champions of health and safety discussed leadership and accountability for health and safety from the business, union, and legal perspective. This executive briefing presents the main challenges and opportunities for action identified throughout the day.
