The Australian Institute of Health & Safety would like to invite you to join us on Thursday 17 June 2021 to hear Tristan Casey's , Lecturer, Griffith University presentation 'Speaking up for safety: Encouraging safety voice'

Speaking up about safety concerns and even ideas to improve the status quo can be difficult in some work settings. Issues with speaking up can range from effortful and cumbersome reporting systems, through to abusive supervision and lack of ‘psychological safety’ (willingness to take an interpersonal risk). Summarising a research program spanning several different organisations in high-risk settings, Tristan will present key practical recommendations, informed by scientific evidence, that can be used to increase safety-related voice behaviours. In particular he will explore the practical contributions of leadership, HR practices, and team factors in driving safety voice.


  • Understand a practical model that maps the key factors involved in driving safety voice and their importance.
  • Identify specific threats to fostering a climate of psychological safety and subsequent safety voice behaviours.
  • Review practical recommendations to encourage safety voice ranging from leadership to HR practices, and team-level factors.
