ACTIVE LEARNING

    Effective learning reduces the risk of failures. There are two aspects to this: the first relates to how well the organisation creates a learning environment of shared experiences while the second relates to raising the awareness of the individual to the specific risks associated with their role. By undertaking our active site based programme and engaging with all stakeholders we can effectively reduce risk by improving both of these areas.
