|S1D||13.15-14.00||Shaun Davis, Group Head of Health & Safety: Royal Mail Group||The Health & Safety Professional as a Business Partner||It works in HR, so why can’t it work in Health & Safety? HR business partnering is a well know process whereby HR professionals work closely with business leaders and/or line managers to achieve shared organisational objectives, in particular designing and implementing HR systems and processes that support strategic business aims. With this "track record" of success, surely we can all learn from this and apply some of the techniques to develop stronger relationships in our organisations?This process may involve the formal designation of ‘Health & Safety business partners’- that is Health & Safety professionals who are embedded within the business, sometimes as part of a wider process of operations. If this is the case, as I propose it is, then where should we start? What is valuable business partnering? Is there an ROI, if so what is it? What does business partnering look like? What does success look like?
