Abstract

The construction industry has a high risk of occupational injury. Throughout August 2017 to February 2018, there had been thirteen construction accidents with three cases of fatality accidents in toll road and rail road projects in Indonesia. Safety Leadership is one of the important components in improving Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) performance. This study examines Safety Leadership Model at the lead position in the project and the operations department of the infrastructure project at PT X as a Construction Contractor Company. This study was a descriptive research with quantitative method based on two main variables of Safety Leadership, those are Leadership Style and Best Practice. Research data obtained from questionnaires, interviews, and observations at PT X’s project location in April - May 2018. This research obtained that Safety Leadership was still weak except The General Manager. This was due to lacks of understanding of SHE policies, communication, consistency and commitment to the implementation of SHE, proactive and initiative action when facing SHE issues. This suggests that company should improve by preparing and implementing Safety Leadership training program for all manager levels as well as maintaining the monitoring of SHE program implementation in the workplace.
