What is Safety Culture?

A safety culture is the backbone of any successful organization. It reflects the approach taken by the organization and its members to identify, mitigate, and manage risks that could harm employees, systems, customers, and the public. A Safety Culture is created and upheld primarily by the values, beliefs/assumptions, and behaviors of the leadership team. By prioritizing safety, organizations can ensure the well-being of everyone involved, prevent accidents, protect lives and systems, and build trust with employees and stakeholders.

Coincidently, the same leadership values, beliefs/assumptions and behaviors that promote safety cultures also produce long-term organizational performance excellence. As a result, a strong safety culture is a critical element of any organization’s success, and every organization must make it a top priority.
