What is a safety culture? A workplace culture that promotes safety places a high level of importance on the beliefs, values and attitudes towards safety issues within the organisation. These values must be shared by most staff and put into practice on a daily basis – when this happens, making safety a priority becomes second nature.
Anyone who has worked in a highly regulated or high-risk environment will know that safety is much more than ticking a box or following a procedure. When the attitude towards safety can be characterised as 'the way things are done around here', a positive safety culture will build which can result in improved safety practices and all-round performance.
