Over 200 organisations both in the UK and overseas are
proactively using the Safety
Climate Tool (SCT) to measure and improve their safety culture.
It is used and trusted by organisations of all sizes, across all
industry sectors. One such organisation is one of the world's
leading logistics automation companies: Swisslog UK. Their Health
and Safety Manager explains how the SCT is helping them to improve
What challenge were you trying to
'Swisslog has a strong safety culture and we require this to
prioritise the wellbeing of colleagues and customers. To support
further improvement within the business, we needed an objective
understanding of our safety culture. We chose the HSE SCT to
'The SCT has certainly supported our cultural improvement
strategy and we've been able to evidence this based on the first
and latest survey data. The survey data helped us understand the
attitudes of our employees towards 8 factors that HSE research
shows are associated with a positive health and safety culture. The
most important improvement we have been able to demonstrate is the
engagement of our employees towards health and safety. We are
delighted with the SCT's output and all the supporting guidance
that comes with it.'
What initiatives were successful?
'The survey helped us to demonstrate that our safety talks,
structured toolbox talks and near miss reporting initiatives were
all very successful. Using the ability to interpret the data based
on our organisations' demographics, we were able to associate the
high levels of line manager engagement in health and safety with
our high levels of training completion, to over 95% for all
'The SCT results showed that there was increased line manager
engagement across all areas of the organisation. We have
subsequently introduced a number of initiatives such as the
delivery of toolbox talks, the creation of an effective near miss
reporting system and the introduction of a health and safety
management platform. The catalyst for these introductions was the
evidence obtained from the HSE SCT survey.'
What would you say to other organisations considering
using the SCT?
'The SCT is a great investment that allows you to drive
improvement based on real and meaningful data from within your
organisation and beyond. The ability to drill down into your
demographics within the tool is really powerful and helps to target
focussed improvement where you see the best opportunities.'
Any final comments?
'Thank you for a great tool that we now use across the other
parts of the organisation. Thank you to the team for being there
(on the end of a phone) to answer any questions and to continually
improve and add to the SCT survey.'
