Much has been written about safety leadership and safety culture and the possible influence that both may have to improve health and safety outcomes in the workplace. In Queensland the Workplace Health and Safety Electrical Safety Office Workers' Compensation Regulator is expanding the topic with its Safety Leadership at Work Program. Although the program is designed to improve safety culture and contribute to reducing work-related injuries and fatalities in Queensland workplaces, it may assist safety leaders in other states and territories.
