Case study: Good work through effective leadership

Leaders at all levels have a critical role to play in building a positive safe work culture, influencing safety improvements, and designing safe, healthy and productive work. 

For many workplace leaders, the safety vision they are still working towards is focussed on achieving an absence of injury. But there is so much more to be gained through creating a strong safety culture, including enhanced worker health and wellbeing and increased business success and productivity. 

This presentation features three different perspectives on how workplace leaders can design good work and influence their safety culture, not only in their own business, but across their supply chain and the broader community. 

Who is this presentation for? 

Regulators, industry representatives, worker representatives and leaders at all levels – from officers and CEOs to middle management and those with work health and safety or human resource functions. 

About the presenters 

Dr Simon Blackwood, Deputy Director General at the Department of Justice and Attorney General with the Queensland Government. 

Jennie Hunter, Manager of Leadership and Culture with Workplace Health and Safety Queensland. 

This seminar also features three business leaders from Australian Country Choice, Lend Lease and Toll NQX.
