Building a Culture of Safety

In this course, you will learn about transport safety and compliance management framework, how to monitor performance, direct and indirect business costs, injuries at work, and ethics in the workplace.


A company’s leadership is one of the most important influencers in the building of a culture of safety. It is through leadership’s expressed/implied support and demonstrated practices that the company’s cultural values are formed. A safety culture becomes the “way of life” in the workplace rather than the adoption of safety and compliance as being imposed or inconvenient. Management and team leaders are the role models which inspire employees to inherently make choices and decisions that contribute to ongoing and sustainable safety and compliance in the company.
