RoSPA and L’Oréal Partner to Support Women in Health and Safety
11 May 2021 | Updated 13 May 2021
 

RoSPA and L’Oréal have partnered to launch their "Leading Safely for Women" programme.

In a bid to support what they see as an underrepresented group in health and safety, the two organisations want to develop the abilities of women in health and safety.

The purpose of the training is to develop the abilities of women in health and safety with an entrepreneurial spirit; enhancing their visibility in the sector.

The next course will be held on 15 June 2021. To be considered for one of the places, please email LS@hosking-associates.com and partnerships@rospa.com your name, organisation, role, contact details and some information about yourself along with a 250-word personal statement explaining how this opportunity will help you and your business by 21 May 2021.

 

"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.” 

–Louise Hosking

Director, Hosking Associates

 

Inspiring Women in Health and Safety 

 

The series of one-day courses aim to identify women from across the globe and inspire them to realise their full potential. The content will help delegates understand where they are now, where they aspire to be and how to develop a health and 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 Safe@Work-Safe@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 commented: “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.” 

Dr Karen McDonnell, RoSPA’s Occupational Safety & Health Policy Adviser, said: “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.”

Malcolm Staves, L’Oréal’s Global Vice President Health & Safety, added: “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.”
