About this webinar:

Designing an effective health, safety and wellbeing programme that covers more than 85,000 employees in 140 countries, while navigating various regulatory, cultural and language differences is no easy feat.

The EHS team at L’Oréal, the world’s largest personal care company, have not only accepted this challenge but created a best-in-class system built on the foundations of risk management, visible felt leadership and putting people at the heart.

Leading the charge on L’Oréal’s Health & Safety strategy is our next webinar guest, Malcolm Staves, Global Vice President of Health & Safety, Fellow of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management, Tedx Speaker, and Chelsea football fan.

Malcolm joins us from Paris on Thursday 31 August to share insights into the global strategies he’s developed covering everything from risk management to behavioural safety, and employee engagement.

Join this Q&A style session to learn about:

  • L’Oréal’s safety pillars, programs and tools behind their global success;
  • The importance of visible leadership and how to execute on it;
  • The story of the hummingbird (the topic of Malcolm’s TedX talk) and the power of symbols in driving engagement;
  • The importance of using the right tool at the right time for multinational H&S programmes.

Furthermore, all attendees will receive a copy of L’Oréal’s internal HSW Essentials Handbook, outlining their safety pillars, major programs and tools that make up their world-class safety system. This is in thanks to L’Oréal’s Safe@Work - Safe@Home global movement that aims to share their strategy, culture and awareness beyond the walls of L’Oréal.
