Title: Leadership and Safety Performance in High Risk Industries: New Advances in Research

Abstract:

Leadership is of paramount importance to ensure employees’ safety performance in high risk industries. Over the last few years, significant research has been carried out in this respect. The aim of this presentation is to review three relevant research advances: First of all, the addition of counterproductive behaviours to the traditional model of safety performance by Griffin and Neal (2000). Secondly, the finding of empowering leadership as one of the most important predictors of followers’ safety performance. Thirdly, the emergence of a new safety-based leadership for high risk industries (High Reliability Leadership), thus solving the never-ending paradox between either being directive or participative depending on the operational conditions. It is expected this talk provides a basis for further debate in the seminar.
