Safety leadership masterclass

This safety leadership masterclass will challenge attendees to advance their understanding of the following questions:

  1. What is safety? How is safety recognised? How do we recognise safety improvement?
  2. Why do we do safety the way we do it? What is the role of evidence and experience in safety practice?
  3. What does it mean to lead safety? What is the difference between safety leadership and safety management?
  4. What are the options for a safety vision? What are the choices and trade-offs that can be made?

Participants must have an understanding of safety and safety practice, and be able to apply that knowledge ethically and effectively within real organisations.

The masterclass is presented in partnership with Griffith University by Dr Drew Rae.
