How We Should Talk About Safety Culture

Rewriting the Conversation

This white paper builds on the existing idea of safety culture and offers strategies for supporting safe operating actions. We will look at safety culture from a managerial and worker perspective and propose, based on empirical research, safety management values that can guide safety management and technical practices in large and medium-to-small organizations.

In an effort to reframe the conversation about safety culture, we propose a new model of the relationship between safety culture and safety outcomes, and we give safety leaders actionable strategies that will help them move forward.
