The safety culture of an organization refers to the collective attitudes, beliefs, and behaviours of its employees with regard to safety. It reflects the organization's commitment to safety and the value it places on the well-being of its employees and the community in which it operates.

A positive safety culture is characterized by open communication, shared responsibility, and a proactive approach to identifying and managing hazards.

Employees are encouraged to report safety concerns and near-misses, and management takes swift action to address these issues. Safety is viewed as a core value and is integrated into all aspects of the organization's operations.


The basic steps to create a positive safety culture are:

  • Leadership commitment: Leadership should demonstrate a visible commitment to safety by setting a clear safety policy, providing necessary resources, and being actively involved in safety initiatives.
  • Communication: Open communication channels should be established to encourage employees to report safety concerns and near-misses. Management should provide regular safety training and ensure that employees understand the importance of safety.
  • Hazard identification: Hazard identification should be a continuous process to identify potential hazards and risks in the workplace. This can be done through regular safety audits, risk assessments, and incident investigations.
  • Employee involvement: Employees should be involved in safety initiatives and given opportunities to provide feedback on safety concerns (safety committees, safety training, safety suggestions, incident reporting, participation in safety audits etc.). This can help create a sense of ownership and responsibility for safety among employees.
  • Continuous improvement: Safety initiatives should be evaluated regularly to identify areas for improvement. This can be done through regular safety audits, incident investigations, and feedback from employees.
