IOSH invites you to attend this event organised by the South East and South West branches:
Whenever humans interact, we are influenced by the values and standards of the group we are interacting with. A well designed and appropriately implemented ethical framework provides the structure for explicitly agreeing and confirming, why we exist, what we value and how we live those values. The OHS function is primarily based on a normative approach to standards and behaviour, it tells is what we ought to do and value. But this approach often fails to recognise the way values differ between people and how even important values are often compromised at work. Having an ethical framework and the tools to assist us consider and resolve of these dilemmas gives us all the opportunity to make decisions based on mutually agreed values in a consistent way. Will attending this session provide all the answers to your questions about ethics? Probably not. But what it may do is help you recognise the importance of a solid and consistent ethical framework and how it can help us overcome ethical challenges when they appear.
