Priority 4:
Safety Culture Leadership

Enabling and promoting safe behaviours for the greatest impact

In everything we do, we seek to drive the adoption of safety as a core value across the construction industry. This priority recognizes the need for highly targeted stakeholder communications and training enhancements that shift mindsets and behaviours in the workplace.

At the forefront of this priority, ACSA seeks to create change leaders to develop and nurture an entrenched culture of safety in business practices.
