Guiding Principles

Most incidents have their genesis well before their time of occurrence. Incidents usually have many factors that contribute to their occurrence, however incident investigations often do not identify all of them. Behaviour of all employees contribute to most incidents, not just the behaviour of the employee/s directly involved.

Safety - An Integrated Approach

Safety X was formed be Trevor Strother with the goal of supporting Workplace Health, Safety and Wellbeing (WHS) Professionals and WHS Practitioners build and strengthen their business relationships so they can influence personnel to integrate safety consideration in all business activities.

Building Sustainable, Integrated Culture​

We recognise that it can be challenging to have a holistic view of the role of safety in the current environment due to the constant focus from regulators and others on legislative and procedural compliance. We support WHS Professionals and WHS Practitioners overcome these challenges so they can build sustainable, integrated business and culture where safety is part of and aligned with all business activities. We recognise that other professional groups have similar issue integration issues. We work with any other group to support the strengthening or organisational performance through greater organisational integration of all activities.

Structured Methodology

To support company’s achieve this integration, Safety X's work is based on the following two principles:

Organisational Alignment

To achieve the organisation's vision, there needs to be alignment between our vision, what we do - management and how we do what we do - leadership.

Safety Culture Integrity

There should only be one culture and that is the organisation culture. The Safety Culture must reflect that. Our Safety Culture Integrity System provides the overarching structure that guides our work.


Safety Culture Development has access to a network of associates who are well experienced in business relationship skill building. Many have worked internationally on projects for major companies such as ExxonMobil and BP. When additional support or expertise is required we use experienced associates who best match the project and our client’s culture.
