This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book aims to misspent efforts in improving or tackling safety leadership and is a blend of information, research, case studies, experiences and practical guidance notes. It explores the research behind specific safety leadership behaviours. Transforming the elusive and ethereal motherhood statements into practical observable behaviours can be the starting point for ensuring safety leadership is not a buzz word or zeitgeist. The book deals with linkages towards safety culture with guidance in analysing a safety culture and using data as a diagnostic tool to compensate the safety leadership paradigm. It discusses the foundations of safety leadership laid out, embedding the behaviours, concepts and ideas into the organisation. Without an adequate transfer of learning, all change initiatives made may have an ephemeral life span.
