ABSTRACT

This study primarily examined the relationship between leadership styles and employee safety citizenship behaviour. The study further examined the moderating role of professional commitment on the leadership and safety citizenship behaviour relationship. A questionnaire was used to obtain data from one hundred and ninety seven participants from an energy distribution company in southern Ghana. Purposive and convenience sampling techniques were employed in data collection. Data was analysed using the statistical package for social sciences version 20 specifically, Pearson product moment correlation, simple linear regression, standard multiple regression, and hierarchical multiple regression were employed for analysis. Results of the regression analysis showed a significant positive relationship between transformational leadership and safety citizenship behaviour. Transactional leadership however demonstrated a negative relationship with safety citizenship behaviour. Furthermore, professional commitment only moderated the relationship between transformational leadership and safety citizenship behaviour. It was recommended that, leaders be assessed before they are assigned to safety sites. It was further suggested that more transformational leaders be put in front line supervisory roles in high risk industries.
