You’ll help to ensure that you and your team are seen as trusted partners to your wider business’s operations.
A safety advisor to the construction industry is a role that enjoys a wide remit.

What health and safety skills do companies need?

Each health and safety role is different, and for each job different technical skills may be required. While the technical skillset varies considerably depending on your position, the organisation you work for, the sector you operate in, and more, there is a growing and much needed emphasis being placed on today’s health and safety professionals having the non-technical skills required to drive change and deliver measurable impact.

At Acre, we developed a non-technical skill assessment tool to objectively measure non-technical skills in HSE professionals. Co-created in partnership with 100+ HSE leaders, our assessment tool provides a benchmark for understanding where an individual’s strengths and development areas lie and enables us to tailor effective development solutions, such as coaching and team training, to close skill gaps and improve performance.

Available at two different levels, our competency framework helps us to communicate what ‘good’ looks like from a non-technical skill perspective from entry and junior level professionals - looking at skills like Planning & Organisation, Team Player and Application of Technical Skills - right through to the c-suite where we measure skills like Innovation and Courage, Executive Influence and Business Insight.

Off the back of these data-informed insights, we deliver coaching and training services to global HSE and sustainability teams. It allows for a consistent approach to development that allows for local flexibility based on the region within which an employee works.
