Safety Leadership in the Boardroom

While often removed from day-to-day operations, board members and senior executives of large corporations set the tone and safety culture of an organisation through the questions they ask, the reporting they seek and the way they conduct themselves when visiting sites and interacting with employees.

The important safety leadership role of this group of senior leaders has regrettably been highlighted after recent high profile disasters such as the Pike River mine explosion and BP Texas City oil refinery fire.
