Abstract

This paper aims to investigate the role of transformational leadership to safety performance in Malaysia’s automotive industry. This study is carried out as a non-experimental type research which employs questionnaire as the method of collecting data. The measurement tool undertaken in the data collection includes Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire and Safety Performance Scale. A total of 696 employees from automotive manufacturing and assembly plants are selected as the respondents of this study. The selection of respondents is made using systematic sampling design. Data of the study are then analyzed using canonical correlation analysis. The finding of the study demonstrates that transformational leadership plays a significant influence to an organization’s safety performance (canonical correlation coefficient= 0.501, p <0.001).
