Safety Leadership Development

Build better safety leaders


About the program

Leaders play a critical role in influencing safety culture and performance.

The Safety Leadership Development program equips leaders with the language, tools and skills to enable them to make conscious choices and build a culture of care, trust, ownership and accountability.

The program educates leaders in understanding human behaviour, why people do what they do, what causes human error and what they can do to influence others to own and consciously choose safety.

What's covered

Delivery format


There are many factors that go into building a truly safe workplace, from systems and processes to culture and training. But one trumps all – safety leadership.

Leaders directly influence about 70 per cent of an employee’s behaviour and this can have a significant impact on generating and driving safety culture. Safety leadership is one of the most important – and least understood – influences on workplace safety.

Effective safety leaders not only improve the safety performance of their teams but are also more successful business leaders, enjoy improved morale and build better relationships.

Why use Jonah Group

Jonah Group’s experts know safety. Not just because they have studied it – but because they have lived it.

In 1999, founders Nada and Robert Wentzel were involved in an horrific accident which left them burned and scarred. The accident led to a life-long inquiry to discover why smart people are capable of such mistakes.

Today, they share that knowledge with leaders from the board room to the front line, driving real change in people’s attitudes, behaviour and mindset – and ensuring safety and wellbeing. In a world where more than 2 million die every year from work related accidents and disease, safety is Jonah Group’s mission.

Whether mental health or physical safety, Jonah Group’s experts teach people the science of risk and help leaders build sustainable cultures of safety.
