Abstract: There has been wide range of study of how leadership can influence workplace safety climate and behaviour. However, few research works have examined the impacts of Leader-Member Exchange (LMX) and how it may be adopted to improve workplace safety climate and behaviour in the construction industry in Singapore. This study empirically examined the possible influential role of LMX in achieving better workplace safety climate and behaviour under Workplace Safety and Health in the Singapore construction industry. The objective of this study can be further broken down into examining the LMX theory and the possible association to contributing to create a safe and healthy workplace. The research method is based on the LMX 7 questionnaire, Zohar Safety Climate Questionnaire (Zohar & Luria, 2005) and Neal and Griffin Safety Behaviour Scale (Neal & Griffin, 2016). Based on a sample size of 87 employees in Singapore construction industry, quantitative research was carried out based on the results of the structured questionnaires. Research findings demonstrated the verification of hypothesises. This research serves to benefit to the literature on workplace safety research based on LMX theory. Recommendations seeking to enhance the safety standards in Singapore construction industry and foster a safe working atmosphere based on LMX were given.
