Award Recipient: Safety Leadership Program

As part of National Safe Work Month, Health Safety and Wellbeing launched an ambitious program to strengthen our safety culture through empowerment, leadership and skills enhancement of our workforce. The program introduced a range of new and exciting initiatives into the MNCLHD health and safety landscape.

The Safety Leadership Forum allowed our senior managers to collaborate and learn first-hand from respected industry leaders, experts from SafeWork NSW, Senior Solicitors, and the icare Paralympian Program to name a few.

During the forum, senior managers discovered how their roles influence to make MNDLHD the safest workplace possible. The Health Safety and Wellbeing team also launched the Safety Culture Survey – the first joint initiative between MNCLHD and icare to identify evidence-based strengths and opportunities in our safety culture.

The outcomes will assist the team to gain valuable cultural insights while prioritising future safety culture improvements.
