Briefing: Defining safety leadership in construction

Umar, Tariq (2017) Briefing: Defining safety leadership in construction. Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers - Municipal Engineer, 170(1), pp. 3-5. ISSN (print) 0965-0903


This briefing explores the tenets of safety leadership within the construction environment. The scope of this briefing aims to define a universal definition of safety leadership with key components from literature review. Without a clear definition towards safety leadership, a misalignment between safety expectations may occur which can create a misappropriation towards safety efforts. This may adversely impact injury rates within the workplace due to ill-conceived safety leadership behaviours. A detailed definition of safety leadership may serve as a foundation for other industries such as mining, manufacturing or petrochemicals.
