Welcome to Safety Dimensions

Safety Dimensions supports organisations to effectively deal with safety performance challenges. We train and develop leaders to do what’s required to tangibly change organisational safety behaviour, enable compliance and ensure due diligence. We know how important it is to create a sustainable safety culture that gives your people the right skill sets, mind-sets and tools, rather than just putting more ‘rules’ or paper trails in place.

Through our safety training programs and consultancy, our approach increases engagement at all levels (be it your leaders, safety teams or employees) to ensure due diligence, assess and manage risk, reduce LTIs and Work Cover claims. Most importantly we give each worker and your organisation the skills to send each person home safely every day.

Contact us to explore how partnering with Safety Dimensions can transform your safety culture.

For Leaders

We understand that workers’ behaviour is greatly influenced by their immediate supervisor. Our programs build skills to increase all leaders’ communication and capability to influence across all levels of an organisation. See more >>

Safety Teams

Safety professionals need the capability to become trusted advisors to those managers and leaders who hold the accountability for a safe workplace. See more >>

For Employees

Employee contribution to the vision of a safe workplace requires a clear and unambiguous message – to speak up and get involved so they an effectively address risk. See more >>

Are you a leader?

As a leader, you want your workplace and those in it to be safe. Yet hanging over everyone’s head is the financial, legal, brand and, importantly, the moral and personal impacts that can result from an unsafe workplace.

As a leader, you are faced with the possibility of:

  • People being hurt on your watch
  • Pain and suffering of the worker and their families
  • Financial costs of not getting safety right, including rising premiums
  • Potential damage to your brand, company and personal reputation
  • Unfavourable scorecard statistics around Lost Time Injury (LTI) or Total Recordable Injury Frequency Rate (TRIFR)
  • The legal repercussions and your personal liability

It’s no coincidence that organisations who invest in safety leadership and training are the companies that reduce their costs.

If an incident occurs in your workplace, it is accepted that a strong defense can be built on two key questions to determine if you, the leader, have undertaken adequate due diligence. You will be asked to demonstrate what you have done personally to keep your workplace safe, and your team will be asked what you have done.

These are the challenges that Safety Dimensions supports our clients to meet, through our training and development programs.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS

An excellent program managed by a professional business. Participants were very impressed and the feedback was that facilitators/trainers were consistent with their training and exceptional in engaging with the audience. Not only were Safety Dimensions flexible, but they were able to provide alternative solutions in managing the program effectively. Safety Dimensions were able to cater for all levels of the business from our masterclass with senior management to the pilot program with key stakeholders, as well as the final roll out of the program nationally to all leaders/managers of the business.”

Lou Torcaso

WHS and Workers Compensation Manager, Costa Group

Safety Dimensions were very diligent – customising the program to suit our particular needs and ensuring our desired outcomes were achieved. The delivery of the program was exceptional.  The facilitator got excellent group interaction and all participants were engaged and contributed from the beginning. I was pleasantly surprised by the number of frontline supervisors that have approached me to say that it was the best course they have attended. I would highly recommend this program to others.

Over the past 12 months, Safety Dimensions has worked closely with us to deliver a tailored safety leadership program to all levels of our business.

During this time, we have seen a significant improvement in our safety attitudes and behaviours, which has resulted in a 33% reduction in our Lost Time Injuries and a 42% reduction in our Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate over 12 months.

General Manager

Large Transport Company

Our airline partnered with Safety Dimensions to deliver a Safety Leadership Program that equipped all staff in leadership roles to engage in i.L.E.A.D. conversations relating to ‘at risk behaviours’.

This involved over 2000 staff who are leaders from Senior Executives to Leadhands. SD trained our airline’s facilitators who co-facilitated with SD until they were competent and confident to facilitate to a high standard.

This program has assisted the airline to continue to improve in its safety journey and has enabled the company to take the next step in achieving its vision of zero harm in the workplace.
