SIA Webinar: Belief-Based Safety Leadership™ – Driving a High-Performance Culture of Safety

Belief Based Safety Leadership™ addresses the human barriers to the achievement of a ‘true culture of safety’ that can exist at the corporate, team and individual level – namely beliefs, expectations, habits, attitudes, values and efficacy.

This session explores the mindsets and strategies that effective leaders adopt in driving high performance whether that be productivity, engagement or safety including how to:

• improve hazard perception and mitigation strategies.
• create an organisation-wide “want to” approach to safety and
• embed good safety practices and behaviours in self and others.
