The purpose of this qualitative case study was to describe the employee perspective of how leadership influenced their workplace safety in a military environment. The participants in this case study were observed while working in their normal environment, interviewed, and historical records were reviewed. During the interviews and observations, the researcher attempted to describe how the participants engaged in workplace safety with and without their supervisors present. Data obtained through the case study was analyzed and two major themes emerged: (1) recreating a military structure; and (2) leading from the front. Based on the data from this case study, it appears the research site needs to recognize the unique needs veterans bring to the workplace.Keywords: military workplace, workplace safety, veterans, leading from the front
