This research aims to explain how safety leadership is enacted in low hazard environments, by:

Identifying the variety of types of safety leadership observed, and characterising the contexts in which each is displayed from an examination of existing empirically-based OSH studies

Determining the variety of practices enacted and shaped by safety leaders operating at different levels in organizations typical of LHEs discovering the variation in the safety leadership practices of individual leaders over time in LHEs revealing the social interaction between workers within organizations operating in LHEs.
