Why has this research been done?

Two important aspects of safety climate are management safety empowerment and management safety justice, which are the perceived degree to which employers respectively empower their workers to influence aspects of their own safety and deal with health and safety incidents fairly and justly.

This research investigated how Australian employers believe they demonstrate management safety empowerment and justice so as to better understand leadership and culture as it relates to work health and safety.

What did we find?

  • Most employers believed that they performed management safety empowerment behaviors frequently in their businesses, including consultation and fostering a safe environment.
  • Around three-quarters of employers thought that they demonstrated management safety justice behaviors frequently in their business, such as listening carefully to everyone involved in an accident.
