    Who we are

The Directorate of Safety meets its essential responsibility to provide safety risk management and assurance support by providing staff focused on strategic safety policy development, safety business intelligence analysis, and an ability to promote safety in the workplace through promotion, training and engagement. The directorate also has a leadership function in safety delivery within Defence; requiring a “technical control” relationship between the directorate, worthiness authorities, and single Service safety agents. A key element of the Directorate’s work involves change management within the organisation in a bid to maximise successful implementation.
