Achieve Safety Culture Excellence - Now and Tomorrow

The Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) now offers support every step of the way to safety culture  excellence

Safety culture is a combination of the attitudes, values and perceptions that influence how something is done in the workplace.

Undertaking safety culture improvements shows measurable benefits and commitment to the wellbeing of staff. Improved safety culture helps organisations achieve:

  • reduced accident and injury rates
  • maintained work performance
  • improved organisational reputation
  • greater competitive edge

One of the largest Human Factors teams in Europe is based at the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL), a part of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). These specialists have used insights gleaned from many years' working with industry to identify the essential steps to improve safety culture.

HSL's dedicated Safety Culture team is available every step of the way to guide your progress to safety culture improvement, ensuring greater efficiency, effectiveness, staff engagement, senior management buy in and, ultimately, a more successful programme of improvement.

HSL's Safety Climate Tool

With HSL's Safety Climate Tool you can measure your current safety climate. Running the online, evidence-based questionnaire gathers employees' attitudes and perceptions in key areas of health and safety in  a systematic and effective way. It allows you to understand strengths and target areas for improvement. It provides insights into the type of interventions you need to put in place for culture and behaviour change. Benchmarking allows you to compare your performance against others in your industry.
