Establishing and fostering a safety culture has, quite rightly, become a more prominent topic to consider for safety directors. No matter the industry or organization, it is now commonly accepted that safety culture can have a huge influence on the success or failure of a safety management system.
Safety culture is not a program, policy or procedure, it is a reflection of how safety is managed in a workplace. However, it is often difficult to pin down, as it is a somewhat ethereal concept, based on soft components that cannot be easily measured – factors such as accountability, leadership and organizational learning.
This difficulty is at the heart of many safety directors’ struggle – how do you pinpoint your organization’s current safety culture? Which activities are having a positive or negative effect?
In the latest of the Medgate Safety Webinar series, Shannon Crinklaw will define safety culture and provide suggestions and ideas around how to recognize and foster a strong safety culture within your organization.
Watch this webinar and learn:
- How safety culture can be broken down into components
- The different ways that it can be (indirectly) measured
