Significance of Safety culture
1 The safety culture of an organisation is the way that all the people within the organisation think and feel about H & S
1.1 It can be defined as shared attitudes, values, beliefs and behaviours relating to H & S
1.1.1 Strong link between safety culture and H & S performance
1.1.1.1 The safety culture of an organisation can be assessed by looking at indicators
1.1.1.1.1 Indicators include
1.1.1.1.1.1 Accidents
1.1.1.1.1.1.1 Sickness rates
1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1 Absenteeism
1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1 Staff turnover
1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1 Worker complaints
2 Positive culture
2.1 Majority of workers think and feel that H & S is important
2.1.1 Strong policy and leadership from the top
2.1.1.1 Everyone works safely because they want to
2.1.1.1.1 People work safely and there will be fewer accidents and ill health
3 Negative culture
3.1 Majority of workers think that H & S is not important
3.1.1 Poorly educated in H & S and see it as unnecessary or not important
3.1.1.1 Lack of clear direction and leadership from management
3.1.1.1.1 Workers behave unsafely because they do not know any better
4 Influence of peers
4.1 Established by the more influential members of the group
4.1.1 If a group is working safely then peer group pressure will keep most people in that group in line
4.1.1.1 If a group is working unsafely then peer group pressure will force more workers to work unsafely
4.1.1.1.1 the behaviour of peer groups exert on workers is a good indicator of safety culture
4.1.1.1.1.1 In an organisation with a negative culture peer group pressure is driving unsafe behaviours and this has not been challenged by management
