Abstract

Middle managers within Deice Crystal are the prime movers and shakers of ensuring that the organisation has both a proactive positive safety culture and a positive safety climate which is supported by both deeds and actions. This study sought to investigate the implications of the 2005 Health Safety and Welfare at Work Act on middle mangers within the context of how these managers perceived their changing roles and responsibilities in light of this fundamental piece of health and safety legislation. The research consisted of quantitative data collected by means of a questionnaire. This data related both to Deice Crystal organisational details and that of middle managers perception of Health and Safety within the organisation in light of the 2005 Health Safety and Welfare at Work Act.
The main findings suggested that these middle managers viewed themselves as having an integral part to play in ensuring that Deice Crystal have in place best practice in terms of Health and Safety policies, procedures and structures. The results of the qualitative data research supported the viewpoint amongst many middle managers, that significant training interventions will be needed to enable middle managers to exercise their roles and responsibilities in an efficient and effective manner. From an organisational health and safety perspective, a lot done more to do.
