We are very excited to introduce our latest white paper, Co-creating the future of H&S leadership development.

As complex change impacts the modern workplace at an exponential rate, a new skill set is required for tomorrow’s leaders.

We believe that the application of this emerging skill set is critical in allowing health and safety, sustainability and related functions to remain relevant and fulfil their potential. When modern leadership approaches are enacted by all business functions, companies become more effective and resilient. To capture this critical non-technical skill set, we dedicated six months to consulting with a select group of senior H&S leaders who now make up the Acre Frameworks Advisory Panel.

The Acre Frameworks Advisory Panel is made up of a 96 senior health and safety professionals from over 20 different sectors. With 1,461 combined years of H&S experience, there insights helped define the benchmark for the HSE values and competencies of the future.

With forewords from James Pomeroy, Group HSES Director at Lloyd’s Register and Jonathan Gawthrop, Director of Health, Safety & wellbeing at Emcor UK – this report outlines the future of H&S leadership development by following three key areas;
