Safety Leadership

LJM helps managers, at all levels, make a positive impact on risk, people and performance.

Developing safety leaders

Leaders are essential to creating and sustaining safety culture.  

LJM Group has a substantial amount of experience in supporting executives, managers and supervisors to become more effective in leading and managing safety improvement.  Core to LJM Group’s approach is establishing genuine ownership for safety, then helping leaders to focus on those actions that drive the biggest impact.

Alignment and clarity at all levels

When safety is truly integrated into an organisation, leaders at all levels are clear on their roles and play an active part in building and sustaining a positive culture.  By defining key activities at each level of work, from strategic leadership to frontline management, people become clear on how their actions contribute in relation to the whole.
