Leaders play a pervasive role in determining the health and safety of organizations. They can influence safety, employee well–being, and available mental health resources. Leading to Occupational Health and Safety brings together the rapidly growing body of research on this topic, and translates it into clear principles for learning along with evidence–based guidance for practice. The book opens by considering the role of the leader in promoting or developing safe workplaces, before discussing the impact of leadership on employee health and wellbeing. Contributors then move beyond traditional divides to explore the many ways in which leadership and wellbeing are intertwined, focusing on new concepts that the authors integrate into existing literature. A final chapter considers the impact on organizations of the psychological wellbeing of leaders themselves.
