While the relationship between leadership and workplace safety has been well studied, the connection between specific leadership styles and safety outcomes is not always clear. Various terminologies complicate clarifying the links between leadership style and workplace safety, as well as the multiple factors that go into workplace safety. This relationship becomes even more complicated with the advent of mobile technology that distributes workers both in traditional work settings and remote locations. As remote workers continue to grow as a population, it will be critical for safety leaders to come up with solutions that can serve multiple employee populations both in conventional and distributed locations. This research project seeks to investigate the current literature on leadership style, safety, and examine how these findings might be applied to build an effective safety framework for remote workers.
