Safety Climate Tool Case Study - SAICA
SAICA is a global business that produces sustainable
solutions for paper and board packaging. Johan Sundblad (Country
Manager, UK) and Andrew Newman (HSE Director, UK) describe how they
used the Safety Climate Tool to measure their safety culture, and
acted upon the results to improve their safety performance
"… It is difficult to measure aspects of safety culture and …to
have a tool to measure it and have the reputation of the health and
safety laboratory behind it made a huge difference as well."

throwing more [resource] at it, it is about better managing
"I very quickly began to recognise it was a very user friendly
system and so flexible that someone who is afraid of IT systems
like me can use it."
"HSL's Safety Climate Tool has provided us with useful data that
allows us to understand our current safety climate and identify the
areas of our business that we should target in order to make
long-term, sustainable improvements."
