“We Have a Great Safety Culture Here”
How many times have you heard this phrase? Do you know what a great safety culture is?
“We Have a Great Safety Culture Here!”
“There are different definitions of Safety Culture, my favourite being “It’s what we do around here”, however, is it appropriate or is there a better definition based on critical thinking and research? What do the critical thinkers say? What have they produced in the way of research?” Why not read “We Have a Great Safety Culture Here” by J. McFeely
What Problem Does "Safety Culture" solve?
The biggest problem organisations have in implementing a safety management system is getting buy-in from everyone who is meant to be protected by the system in place. There are many reasons why people don’t buy into safety management systems. For example, the systems might not be practical or reasonable, perhaps employees are ignorant of the systems in place or perhaps the systems are just badly designed. A Learning Safety Culture can highlight required changes in the system, through the feedback of the worker at the coal face. A good safety culture is one where people are happy to follow and improve the safety systems in place.
Whats the Difference Between a Safety Culture and a Safety Climate?
The priority placed on safety and the extent to which people accept personal responsibility for safety in an organisation are embodied in safety culture. As a shared value of safety, safety culture is sometimes defined as an organisation’s “personality.” Meanwhile, a safety climate is described as an organisations mood. Safety culture is formed over time, whilst a safety climate represents a snapshot of perceptions at a single point in time.
How do you Decipher a Safety Climate?
There are many different tools we can use to decipher a safety culture. The best way is to use several, so that a more precise climate can be forecasted.
