Abstract: Studies have explored organizational barriers to workplace safety, but there is a lack of research conducted to understand this in depth from both leader and employee perspectives to identify any divergence in perceptions that may prevent the smooth implementation of safety, health, and wellness policies and initiatives. This dissertation has two main aims. Through interviews with company leaders and employees, 1) identify barriers that impede the implementation of safety, health, and wellness initiatives and policies in organizations, and 2) understand why leaders and employees view the barriers as such. A survey exploring employees¿ perceptions of the safety, health and wellness situation in their workplaces was administered. Face-to-face interviews with 80 informants from the marine, construction, services, and manufacturing industries were conducted. Representatives from the senior management, human resources, supervisory and employee levels in the marine, construction, services and manufacturing industries were interviewed.
