The influence of safety-specific transformational leadership and multicultural competence on safety consciousnes in multinational working teams.
Occupational safety is an important issue for all organisations, because it minimises health threats and economical losses. This study examines the influence of leadership style on the employees’ safety consciousness, with a special focus on cultural differences. With a questionnaire based on previous research a survey was carried out amongst around 196 workers who operate within multinational teams, in order to give insight into the requirements for managers of multicultural teams. It was found that leadership style indeed predicted safety consciousness.
