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
- 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 Safety Climate Tool
You can purchase the Safety Climate Tool
licence from HSL and run the simple, online questionnaire to
measure your current safety climate and explore your employees'
attitudes and perceptions in key areas of health and safety. 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. Find out more about HSL's Safety Climate Tool.
