The University of Nottingham Global Strategy 2020 sets out a vision for the future. Part of that vision is being committed to excellence, enterprise and social responsibility. As leaders at the University it is essential that you align your school or professional department to this vision and an essential part of that is ensuring the health and safety of all of those effected by your activities.
A leader’s style of leadership and visible demonstration of their commitment to safety through actions is important in shaping the school or professional services culture. A long term focus, commitment and a willingness to walk the walk is essential to leading safely.
Leadership drives culture which in turn drives behaviour. Safety Culture can be defined as the way things get done round here.

The attitudes and actions of those in positions to direct or control workplace standards and activities would be scrutinised. Relevant factors include:
