Achieving Safety Culture Excellence

Safety culture is a combination of the attitudes, values and perceptions that influence how something is actually done in the workplace, rather than how it should be done. Poor safety culture has contributed to many major incidents and personal injuries, and can be just as influential on safety outcomes as an organisation's safety management system itself.

Undertaking safety culture improvements shows your commitment to the wellbeing of your staff but also offers measurable benefits:

  • Accelerated safety culture improvement
  • Reduced accident and injury rates
  • Increased employee productivity
  • Better workplace morale and staff retention
  • Improved organisational reputation
  • Greater competitive edge

HSL support to ensure a successful programme of safety culture improvement

At the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL), we have one of the largest dedicated Human Factors teams in Europe, including occupational and health psychologists. These specialists have used insights gleaned from many years' working with industry to identify the essential steps to improve safety culture.

The tool guarantees anonymity and provides you with an auto report that highlights areas of health and safety that are favourable, neutral and unfavourable within your organisation.
