The Safety Leadership at Work Program is designed to improve safety culture and contribute to reducing work-related injuries and fatalities in Queensland workplaces.

Through the program, safety leaders at all levels have the opportunity to learn from others, develop their safety leadership skills and build a positive safety culture in their workplace.

The best safety leaders develop their practices over time, learning from others along the way. The Safety Leadership at Work Program provides direct access to leaders who have already commenced their safety journey, so that you can apply their learnings directly to your own workplace.
