Safety culture as defined by ‘the way we do things around here’ can most effectively be demonstrated by the actions and behaviours of people when the boss isn’t around (do your workers put their ear muffs on only when they see you coming for instance)?
A positive safety culture means a safer, healthier and more productive workplace. And like any aspect of an effective business, growing a positive safety culture requires a commitment of time, resources and focused actions (WorkSafe NZ).
Positive safety cultures start with senior management and a commitment to safety improvement, realistic approaches for dealing with risks and workers’ safety concerns as well as strong and effective engagement.
We have a long and successful track record of enhancing safety culture and are very keen to share this experience with our clients.
