Numerous ideas and models abound regarding leadership and how it should be done to improve safety. In this complex and sometimes confusing space, it can be easy to get lost in the competing views of what ‘good’ safety leadership looks like.
LEAD4Safety is an innovative model of safety leadership, developed through active partnerships between safety science experts, the Queensland government, and industry. Where the LEAD4Safety model adds value is it integrates multiple theories about safety leadership and is also based on the idea that it is futile to search for a one size fits all approach to safety. Good safety management requires flexibility as well as stability; prevention of failure as well as promotion of success.
LEAD4Safety is an award-winning model that has been recognised by the National Safety Council of Australia via the coveted Pinnacle award in 2019, and has since been adopted by Workplace Health & Safety Queensland, the Electrical Safety Office, Teys Australia, WorkSafe Victoria, and many other diverse organisations in high-risk settings.
In this webinar, Dr Tristan Casey, safety leadership expert, will introduce the LEAD4Safety model and explain its science in easy-to-understand terms. Dr Casey will describe the four LEAD4Safety strategies and what example practices look like among successful safety leaders. The webinar will conclude with case studies around how LEAD4Safety has been applied by industry to achieve their safety performance goals.
